This just in from Professor Andrew Warren:
"In celebration of Interdependence Day Harvard's English Department will be holding a marathon reading of Infinite Jest on November 8th, from 9am to 8pm at the Arts Café at Barker. By miraculous coincidence November 8th also happens to be Election Day in an election season that has, at every step, fairly approximated Infinite Jest's bent realities. Please therefore join us for a day where reality and fiction collide. There will be Johnny Gentle campaign buttons and "I Jested" stickers aplenty."
