humorist and champion of lazy couch potatoes everywhere, Todd
Rosenberg, will read from his new, illustrated lifestyle manual
"The Odd Todd Handbook: Hard Times, Soft Couch" (Warner
Books, $13.95) at Barnes & Noble, 106 Court St. at State
Street on May 8 at 7 pm.
Rosenberg, 33, was inspired to write this guide to goofing off
after his interactive Web site, Oddtodd.com,
became popular and his online tip jar jingled with $9,000 (which
provoked a lawsuit from the state Department of Labor who objected
to the cartoonist applying for unemployment benefits while accepting
the tips. Rosenberg won the lawsuit).
For more information about this free event, call (718) 246-4996.
Rosenberg will also appear at BookCourt, (163 Court St. at Dean
Street), on May 27 at 7 pm. For more information, call (718)
