Well, MRoth’s efforts at differentiating Wesleyan’s brand from Wellesley’s is all but over once HRC comes to Middletown. RJ Julia posted on their website and Facebook page that Hillary Rodham Clinton will be coming to Middletown on Saturday, October 21 at 2pm for a book signing of her new book, “What Happened.” Sadly enough, this event will take place during Wesleyan’s fall break and many students therefore, will not be able to attend.
This event is ticketed and will cost $30+tax. You will get a copy of her book and chance for it to be signed. Here are the extremely vetted guidelines for this event. According to the event’s page:
From the CFA:
Quiara Alegría Hudes is the Shapiro Distinguished Professor of Writing and Theater at Wesleyan University. Her play “Water by the Spoonful” received the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Her other works include the book for the 2008 Tony Award-winning “Best Musical” “In the Heights,” and the plays “Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue” (2006) and “The Happiest Song Plays Last” (2013).
Her younger cousin grew up in “the barrio,” graduated public school, enlisted at the age of seventeen, sustained a leg injury in Iraq, and became a veteran, all by the ripe age of eighteen. This talk tells the true backstage story of what happened after Ms. Hudes turned her cousin’s life into a trilogy of plays. For him, opening night was only the beginning. Reception and book signing to follow the talk. An Outside the Box Theater Series event presented by the Theater Department and the Center for the Arts.

Here’s a heads-up from McKenzii Webster ’13:
Ever read Rolling Stone? Ever watched The Dylan Ratigan Show on MSNBC? Ever read Complex? Chances are you have read or watched something from the man you see pictured here! Come hear Touré–novelist, journalist, critic, and television host–speak on topics from his most recent book Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?.
A book signing will follow.
DATE: Thursday, February 23rd
TIME: 7-9 PM
