By Dennis M. RSS Fri, January 24, 2020

Have you ever wanted to hear some of your favorite authors speak live and in person? A new month means a new wave of authors excited to talk about their new books on love, politics, food, music, and fun. The best part is that you can find tickets to some of these events on the Experience Pass – totally for free!

If you’ve ever wanted to hear "Rev Run" Simmons of Run DMC talk about old school love, then this is your chance! The Experience Pass offers tickets for two to hear him and his wife, Justine Simmons, share the secrets and principles that have kept them together for a quarter-century.

If you’re in the mood to discover some tasty new dishes with the New York Times food editor, hear how to "make America a democracy again," or learn about common financial misunderstandings from a Nobel Prize winner, then you’re in luck. Head over to the Experience Pass site, and reserve your free tickets to these and many more great speakers!*
