Saturday Night Live alum and now author Tom Davis will be in Minneapolis to discuss his memoir Thirty-Nine Years of Short-Term Memory Loss: The Early Days of SNL from Someone who Was There. Magers & Quinn Booksellers is pleased to host a reading by Tom Davis at Lyndale United Church of Christ, 31st and Aldrich Avenue S, Minneapolis, on Thursday, March 12, at 7:30pm, for this one-of-a-kind event.
A memoir by Tom Davis, an original writer on Saturday Night Live and comedy partner with Al Franken, Thirty-nine Years of Short-Term Memory Loss is a hilarious book about the early days of Saturday Night Live that chronicles Davis’s friendship with Jerry Garcia, Timothy Leary, and his friends at SNL.
“Finally a book by someone who actually worked at the original Saturday Night Live. Tom Davis writes in a heartfelt and hilarious style telling great stories from the world of show business and entertainment.” —Dan Aykroyd
“Frankly, I’m surprised Tom was able to remember this much of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. But I’m not surprised that my old partner was able to capture the times with such humor and such wisdom.” —Al Franken
