It’s a crappy day for such a good event

I just want to remind everyone that Jared Diamond will be discussing Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed at the First Parish Church in Harvard Square at 6:30 tonight.
In fact, there are a number of great events this season. In February, we have among others Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Hochschild, Louis Menand, and Peter Carey. In March, Jorie Graham and Richard Parker. In April, Ian McEwan, Jonathan Safran Foer, Camille Paglia, Jeannette Winterson, and Ruth Reichl. And we are ending our event season with a real big one–David McCullough. I am going to try and attend as many of these as possible and report back.
