Keynote Speaker: Christopher Buckley
Christopher Buckley, "the quintessential political novelist of his time" according to Fortune magazine, is the winner of the distinguished ninth annual Thurber Prize for American Humor. John Updike calls him "A Benchley with Word-Perfect," and Joseph Heller described him as "an effervescent joy." Tom Wolfe named Buckley "One of the funniest writers in the English language." Audiences have called Buckley's talks "The wittiest, funniest, wry-est presentation of them all!" and "the best... in the eleven year history of our event."
