Upcoming Athenaeums: Get Excited!

The CWA Athenaeum Series is hosting some outstanding individuals this year. Mark your calendars for Baltimore beatboxer Shodekeh, who will be at the FREE student dinner on Tuesday, September 7 and will be performing a FREE concert on Wednesday, September 8, at 7pm in the UMC Ballroom. This CWA frequenter is not to be missed; check out what Roger Ebert had to say about him back in the spring as well as a recent Washington Post article. Shodekeh will be joined by student a cappella group CU On the Rocks as well as acclaimed saxophonist and CU Jazz Studies professor John Gunther.

Also, Rolling Stone columnist Matt Taibbi will coming to CU on October 5 th and 6th. Taibbi’s recent Rolling Stone article about Wall Street and financial reform has stirred up a lot of conversation, and his April 2009 article about Goldman Sachs also sparked some fierce debates. Needless to say, Taibbi’s presentation will be anything but dull!  So save the date(s): Tuesday October 5th, public lecture at 7pm in Muenzinger Auditorium, and the FREE student dinner on Wednesday October 6th. Students must RSVP for the dinners at ath@colorado.edu

    I hope you webcast and archive Matt Taibbi’s talk. What a lineup!
