An A-list cast will bring one of Philip Roth’s bestselling novels to life with a dramatic reading Sunday.

Jon Hamm and Jennifer Ehle are among the stars performing the 2004 hit The Plot Against America, an alternative history in which Charles Lindbergh is elected president in 1940 and keeps the U.S. out of World War II.
