About Join critically acclaimed writer, Benjamin Nugent, the author of American Nerd: The Story of My People -- a cultural history of the nerd -- for a reading, booksigning and discussion. The Los Angeles Times called it "One of the season's most talked-about cultural studies." He'll speak about how the modern concept of the nerd evolved during the 19th and 20th centuries, and how the presentation of the nerd in popular culture has changed over the past several decades.
