Chuck Klosterman - But What If We're Wrong?: Thinking about the Present as If It Were the Past

Friday, June 10, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A consulting editor at Grantland, Klosterman is one of this country’s best-known commentators on popular culture. He has worked as a senior writer for Spin as well as a columnist for Esquire,, and The New York Times Magazine, where he wrote “The Ethicist.” His essays have been collected in several volumes; in addition to book-length nonfiction narratives on music, travel, and romance, he’s the author of two novels. In his new book he starts with questions. What if seemingly secure parts of our world—like time or gravity or the value of democracy or music—in years to come turn out to be something different, or are proven wrong? Klosterman looks at today’s world as someone from the future might, and he buttresses his ingenious speculations with insight from thinkers and writers including Neil deGrasse Tyson, Alex Ross, Kathryn Schulz, David Byrne, and many others.
