Connecticut native, Mike Reiss, writer for The Simpsons and author of Springfield Confidential, will appear at the Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St., on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 2 p.m.
Reiss is a writer for the popular television show since its first day to the present. Now in its 30th season, The Simpsons is the longest-running scripted primetime television series in the United States. In this fun and informative presentation, Reiss talks about how The Simpsons started off being condemned by the National Council of Churches and wound up being praised by Pope Benedict. He also discusses the show’s great humanist guest stars Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking, among others.
