Two upcoming events that might be of interest to my followers in SoCal:
1) The Past Tense seminar at the Huntington Library with Peter Stallybrass. Always a delight to listen to (such as in this podcast of his plenary at the Past’s Digital Presence conference), Stallybrass will be speaking on “What is a Book? And how do we write about it?” At noon in the Munger Building on January 20th. RSVP to reserve a box lunch and to receive a copy of the pre-reading for the event.
2) Novice Open House for the IMUA outrigger paddling team. Everyone is welcome to join us and try their hand at this sport. January 29th, 9-11am at NorthStar Beach (next to Newport Aquatic Center), Newport Beach.
