Taibbi is the author of Griftopia, one of the most entertainingly quotable, scathing, and illuminating histories of the economic crisis. In 2008, he won the National Magazine Award for his columns in Rolling Stone (where he was a contributing editor). He was recently sought out by First Look Media to launch a digital magazine focused on financial and political corruption.

Harvard Book Store welcomes singer-songwriter STEPHIN MERRITT of the Magnetic Fields for a presentation of Two-Letter Words—his one-of-a-kind celebration of the 101 two-letter words allowed in Scrabble—in conversation with the Boston Globe's ETHAN GILSDORF.
Rolling Stone has called Stephin Merritt “the Cole Porter of his generation”; O, The Oprah Magazine has hailed cartoonist Roz Chast as “the wryest pen since Dorothy Parker’s.” Together they have crafted a wonderfully witty book that is sure to prove useful to Scrabble players and Words With Friends addicts—and to delight anyone in thrall to the weirder corners of the English language.
With the mordant wit and clever wordplay of Edward Gorey or Shel Silverstein, Stephin Merritt has written an original four-line rhyming poem for each of the 101 two-letter words included inThe Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. Here are poems about familiar words (such as at,go, hi, no, and up) as well as obscure ones (such as aa, ka, oe, qi, xu). And every one of the 101 poems is accompanied by a full-color illustration by the incomparable cartoonist Roz Chast.
101 Two-Letter Words is perfect for any language lover or Scrabble player (it may even improve your score!).
Tickets are also available at Harvard Book Store and over the phone at 617-661-1515.

The events of 9/11, the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and most recently, the atrocities committed by ISIS forces in Iraq have all placed tremendous strain on American-Muslims’ relations with non-Muslims in communities across America. Mutual suspicion on both sides of the divide has limited opportunities for meaningful interaction on issues of common concern, and challenged our deeply-cherished American identity as a “melting pot” nation built by immigrants from all walks of life. Even in the Pioneer Valley - a region nationally-recognized for its diversity, tolerance, and wealth of top-tier academic institutions - these global events have had a palpable impact on community relations. The high-profile trial and conviction of Muslim-American Ayyub-Abdul Alim on charges of illegal firearm possession in Springfield, the arrest of two Somali sisters over a physical altercation with a classmate over alleged bullying in West Springfield, and the protests and counter-protests these events spawned illustrate the extent of divisions within our community
Approximately 2% of Pioneer Valley residents practice Islam, and many of those identifying as Muslim are recent immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa. Assimilation into American life can be difficult and confusing process that discourages many Muslims from connecting with Americans outside of their tightly knit immigrant community. Likewise, Muslims’ presence in the community can be a source of tension for many native-born residents who have never met a Muslim before, and who base their impressions of the culture and religion on such high-profile events as the Boston Marathon Bombing or 9/11. Public sector officials who come into contact with Muslims may struggle to provide appropriate support without a contextual understanding of the familial or cultural dynamics at play.
Karuna Center for Peacebuilding and Critical Connections invite you to attend a free, full-day conference entitled Building Inclusive Communities: Engaging with our American-Muslim Neighbors.Join the Pioneer Valley’s leading policy makers, academics, and opinion leaders as they explore how divides between American-Muslims and the broader American public have manifested in our community post-9/11. This gathering of religious and community leaders, educators, social service providers, and law enforcement and media personnel is intended to provide public sector workers with an opportunity to improve their understanding of the American-Muslim experience, and identify strategies each sector can play in building safer, more inclusive communities.
Event highlights include:
Panel discussions chaired by local leaders in the education, law enforcement, faith-based, social service sectors on the problems, struggles, and opportunities faced by Muslim-Americans and non-Muslims in relation to one another;
Sector-specific working groups on strategies for building safer, more inclusive communities, drawing on best practices developed in other regions of the country;
A review of practical skills and competencies for engaging with resident Muslim and immigrant refugee communities.
A free networking lunch catered by Cedar’s Restaurant in Springfield, Massachusetts.
**Please note: Karuna Center and Critical Connections will limit registration to social workers, faith leaders, educators, and law enforcement officers based in the Pioneer Valley until October 17th at which point we will open registration up to the broader public to fill any remaining seats.
