Just hearing about this event for the first time? Here’s what you need to know:
Has Al Franken become a true "Giant of the Senate"? The senator asks readers to decide for themselves in his brand-new memoir. It’s the tale of an award-winning former comedian whose unlikely congressional campaign had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history (and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga), which is pretty funny in retrospect. Salon CEO Jordan Hoffner talks with the honorable gentleman from Minnesota about his incredible journey from the "Saturday Night Live" Studio 8H to the Capitol building.
