Rebecca Schuman

When: Sun., Feb. 12, 2 p.m. 2017

The first round is on Meet Me Saint Louis as Slate Magazine columnist Rebecca Schuman discusses her hilarious and heartfelt story of teenaged romance turned lifelong obsession. Schadenfreude is the German word used to describe the pleasure derived from the suffering of others, and SCHADENFREUDE: A LOVE STORY: Me, the Germans and Twenty Years of Attempted Transformations, Awkward Miscommunications, and Humiliating Situations That Only They Have Words For lives up to that meaning. The event includes: a presentation by Schuman, beer, UCBC’s warm pretzels, audience Q&A, fun German trivia questions with prizes, and a book signing.
