Ed Bedford 11 a.m., March 12
Salman Rushdie at UCSD
Salman Rushdie will discuss his new autobiography Joseph Anton at the Mandeville Center in Revelle College at UC-San Diego (9500 Gilman Dr) from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 22.
Rushdie was sentenced to death 23 years ago by Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini for his work The Satanic Verses. Joseph Anton is his personal account of "his crucial battle for freedom of speech, the close bonds he formed with his protectors, his struggle for support and understanding, and how he regained his freedom." Rushdie is also famous for his novel Midnight's Children which won the Booker Prize in 1981.
Admission ranges from $40 for single admission and a copy of his book, or $60 for two tickets and a copy of the work. To register, click here.
