Michael Wolff’s incendiary bestseller “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” has been the must-read book of 2018 since it was published in January, and now the author is scheduled to appear on Long Island to discuss the book.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21 for “An Evening with Michael Wolff,” an event at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on May 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets, $39.50-$99.50, can be purchased online at LiveNation.com or by telephone at 800-653-8000. Tickets purchased for $99.50 include a meet-and-greet with the author and a signed copy of the book.

“Fire and Fury” set off a media firestorm (and a presidential tweetstorm calling the author “mentally deranged”) with its account of chaos, dysfunction and infighting in Oval Office. Wolff, the author of “The Man Who Owns the News” and other books, spent 18 months interviewing members of the White House staff, including Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, former chief of staff Reince Priebus and former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

The book, published by Henry Holt, is currently No. 2 on the Publishers Weekly hardcover nonfiction bestseller list.
