Chomsky’s Back

In honor of the Tucson Festival of Books, famed and distinguished intellectual Noam Chomsky will be making an appearance at UA's Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd., on Sunday, March 15 from 4 to 5 p.m. (doors open at 3). The dean of UA's College of Social and Behavioral Sciences will introduce the renowned linguist and political activist. A correspondent at The Nation, to which Chomsky is a long-time contributor, will speak about Chomsky's latest book "Masters of Mankind: Essays and Lectures from 1969-2013." Chomsky himself will answer questions that people can submit and vote online for ahead of time. If his last Tucson appearance is any indicator, tickets will be gone very quickly. The box office will begin handing out the free tickets at Noon on the day of the event, limited to four per person. I highly recommend lining up in advance. For those who can't snag any, the UA will have rooms set up for overflow where Chomsky's conversation will be streamed live. The event's Facebook page has more information..
