Rebecca Goldstein at UAlbany

rebecca goldsteinThis could be interesting: philosopher Rebecca Goldstein will be at UAlbany Tuesday for a reading organized by the New York State Writer's Institute. It's at 8pm in the Science Library on the uptown campus. It's open to the public.

Goldstein's novel 36 Arguments for the Existence of God was released earlier this year. A reviewer for the Washington Post called it "a brainy, compassionate, divinely witty novel." Janet Maslin described it in NYT as "overcomplicated yet dazzling, sparked by frequent flashes of nonchalant brilliance." Here's an excerpt.

Also: Dartmouth professor Michael Chaney will be at St. Rose Wednesday for a public talk about "Subject and History in The African American Graphic Novel." It's at 6:30pm in the Lally Building.

hmmm...could be interesting.

Just found this while going through my RSS Feed: http://fora.tv/2010/03/05/Pinker_and_Goldstein_Reason_Fiction__Faith

Might be interesting for those planning to attend to watch it before heading over to UAlbany tomorrow night.
