Thursday, October 5th, from 6pm to 8pm, the MIT Communications Forum welcomes author and humorist Sarah Vowell!!!

She’s also the author of seven brilliant, best-selling nonfiction books, which have covered everything from cranky cartographers and religious zealots to overthrown Hawaiian queens and presidential assassins.
Join Vowell at the MIT Communications Forum for a special conversation, audience Q&A, and book signing. Free -- but seating is limited! More details below.
