On Wednesday night, Junot Diaz read a brand new short story to a packed house at the Brattle Theater here in Cambridge. You can hear a podcast here. Also, Henry Jenkins, an MIT professor, has posted a geek quiz based on references from TheÂ Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Haven’t had a chance to take the quiz myself (I’m about 2 hours away from vacation) but I bet I’ll score big.
Make sure you’re not packin’ heat if you have to travel through an airport. Hope all is well. Safe travels. Your Virginia pal–Martin Clark
I scored 85 on the geek quiz. If you know the Lord of the Rings and comics, that’s like 70% of the quiz.
