Adult Education
a useless lecture series

Adult Education is a Brooklyn-based monthly lecture series devoted to making useless knowledge somewhat less useless. Each month is devoted to a given theme, and 4 speakers will address some aspect of that theme using visual aids.

This month, Adult Education welcomes a panel of presenters to look back on 2008 — and ahead to 2009:
"The Year in Review"
The line-up will include:

Things We Lost
From Astroland to Yankee Stadium, Patrick Di Justo takes us on a tour of the people
and things that collapsed, died, or evolved away in 2008.

Crusty, Saucy, Cheesy
Food blogger Adam Kuban reviews the year in pizza, during
which the humble pie made technological advances yet remained true to its roots.

Welcome to the Night
Joe Garden considers the year in vampires.

The Year of Payback
Trendspotter Marian Salzman explains why the buzzword for 2009 will be "reboot."

All hosted by comedian Charles Star
