Matt Taibbi to be hosted by CWA Athenaeum October 5-6

The well-known Rolling Stone columnist, Matt Taibbi, will be on campus to give a talk, “Griftopia: Wall Street’s Theft Culture” Tuesday, October 5th. Mr. Taibbi is well known for his coverage of the 2004 presidential election and for previous editorial positions with newspapers such as the eXile, the New York Press, and the Beast. He has had an extensive career in sports as well, being the first American to play professional baseball in Russian, and playing professional basketball in Mongolia. He has had regular appearances on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show and Real Time With Bill Maher.

The free public talk will be on Tuesday, October 5th at 7pm in the Muenzinger Auditorium. More information on  the talk is available at the CWA homepage. To be added to the Athenaeum e-list to get reminders of upcoming events, send an e-mail to ath@colorado.edu .

The CWA dinner on October 6th is a student-only function, open to any and all students on the CU Boulder campus. Taibbi’s talk is titled,“The 52 funniest things about making a living”.
