Twilight of the Elites at MIT


Flyer2.jpg


A quick note for everyone in the Boston area. As I've said, I'm teaching up at MIT this semester in the department of Writing and Humanistic Studies. The first public event I'm doing will be this Tuesday, October 30th at 7 PM. I'll be hosting my friend and fellow traveler Chris Hayes in a wide-ranging discussion about his incredible book, Twilight of the Elites. 


I've written about the book quite a bit here, and I taught it this semester in my class.  I am very excited about this and I hope some of you can make it out. The event will be at Simmons Hall in the MPR room.


Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
