Tony Kushner lecture: Thursday, April 10, 4:15pm

Tanner Lectures on Human Values
Tony Kushner, "Fiction That's True! Historical Fiction and Anxiety." Lowell Lecture Hall, 17 Kirkland St., corner of Kirkland and Oxford streets
Max had two free tickets, and offered them to me, but I remembered that Nicole's gonna be out of town the following day (which is a teaching day), so I may not be able to leave early after all, so possibly I should pass them on or give them back? (And if I do go, I still only need one ticket.) So... anyone? I know the timing is problematic for us 9-5ers, but figured it was worth putting it out there.
