Free Lecture by Chuck Klostermann, March 18

Best-selling author Chuck Klosterman, widely regarded as the nation’s premier pop-culture journalist, is returning to MTSU March 15-18 for a series of events sponsored by the John Seigenthaler Chair of Excellence in First Amendment Studies and MTSU’s College of Mass Communication.

His free public lecture is scheduled for Thursday, March 18, at 1 p.m. in Room 221 of the McWherter Learning Resources Center on campus. For more information, call 615-898-5150.

Entertainment Weekly has called Klosterman, author of five nonfiction best-sellers (including the 2009 essay collection Eating the Dinosaur) and a novel, "one of America's top cultural critics." The former SPIN senior writer is responsible for a monthly column, Chuck Klosterman’s America, in Esquire, for which he wrote the much-discussed Britney Spears cover story for the magazine’s 70th anniversary issue. He has also written for The New York Times, The Washington Post and GQ.
