heads up… Talk isn't cheap at the upcoming Glass on Glass evening at St. Ann's, but look at this way: you aren't likely to hear such good talk anywhere else that night – Ira Glass talks with his cousin Philip – and it's a benefit for the increasingly crucial St. Ann's. Tickets are $150 and $350, the date is Tuesday, April 28th.
