McCain and Black, chroniclers of the weird, to speak in San Francisco

The couple who scoured America in search of the weird and wonderful and wrote a book about their encounters, Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black, will be the featured speakers at a July 17 event sponsored by the Commonwealth Club of California‘s INFORUM series.

Here’s what the club says about the authors of  “America, You Sexy Bitch,”:

 Odd couple of the year, McCain and Black have written a love letter to America. In a cross-country tour to probe our beautifully weird country, encountering everyone from gun lovers, flag burners, teen moms, poker players to politicians and gay parents, the liberal comedian dad and the rising pundit and media darling explored all the nooks of American life, while stopping at every Olive Garden they come across, of course.
