Jared Diamond came to speak at the University of Idaho on Wednesday and, after hearing about the event from a classmate the day before, I called Violet to see if she was interested in going. She owns two of his books and has mentioned them in casual conversation, so it seemed like it would be worth attending since neither of us would be at NWAC (the Northwest Anthropological Convention). Violet said that she was excited to hear that he was coming to the area but added that she wasn't going because (a) she didn't finish with work until seven o'clock - when the event was scheduled to start - and (b) her car broke down on the drive back from Seattle during spring break and couldn't go any faster than 65 km/h on the freeway.
