I drove up to Reading, Pennsylvania yesterday to do an event with the Albright College New Liberals. It’s always cool to see new places (they have a pagoda!) and meet new people. I’m heading home today, but I’m glad to see talks and conferences and in-person events making a comeback.
Speaking of which, I am going to be speaking on April 21 at a fundraiser for Ben Bergmann who is running for D.C. Council in Ward 3 on a pro-housing platform. If you’d like to come, we’d love you to buy a ticket before the filing deadline on April 10. Hope to see you there!
