Chuck Klosterman

When: Wed., June 15, 7 p.m. 2016

Thanks to the intoxicating combination of humanity's tendency to overestimate itself and the Internet, the world is full of people pronouncing with certainty that they're right about almost everything. Pop-culture critic Chuck Klosterman dares to ask the unthinkable in his new book, But What If We're Wrong?: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past. In interviews with people such as David Byrne, Junot Diaz and Ryan Adams, Klosterman explores the implications of being wrong about the best musicians, the importance of sports in American culture and the golden age of television. He discusses and signs copies of But What If We're Wrong as the guest of Left Bank Books at 7 p.m. tonight at the Improv Shop (510 North Euclid Avenue). Admission is free but reservations are required; visit www.left-bank.com to sign up.
