Chuck Klosterman in Conversation with Mike SagerSaturday, 4 p.m.

Koffler - Room 204

While we're not huge fans of Klosterman's novels, his nonfiction work on sports, music, pop culture and the universe as a whole have always been great reads. The conversation with Esquire's Mike Sagar should be particularly interesting. Plus, he has a nice beard.
