Jonathan Safran Foer in Beverly Hills tonight

What can you expect from Jonathan Safran Foer's event in the Los Angeles area tonight? Something like his appearance on "The Colbert Report," maybe, but without Stephen Colbert asking, "So you think you can improve on Moses?"

Instead, it will be the L.A. Times' David L. Ulin asking Foer about "The New American Haggadah." That's the book that tells the story of Passover, which Foer has edited in a new edition, translated by novelist Nathan Englander. It includes essays and commentary by Jeffrey Goldberg and Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler) and other contemporary Jewish American writers.

Presented by Writers Bloc, the event will be held at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. Tickets are $20.
