“Savage” columnist to talk relationships

posted in: Student Life | 0

Dan Savage, author, activist, creator and writer of the internationally syndicated column “Savage Love” will be visiting the Pacific University Forest Grove campus on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

During his visit he will be presenting “Savage Love Live,” a program sponsored by Center for Gender Equity and College of Arts and Sciences Student Senate, and will answer audience questions about relationships, sex, gay rights, politics and anything else an audience member may ask. Representatives from CGE said the presentation will be “hilarious and provocative,” but may be inappropriate for younger guests.

In addition to his column, which has been running for more than 15 years and is published in newspapers across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, Savage has written four books, is the Editorial Director of The Stranger, a weekly Seattle newspaper, has contributed to The New York Times and the radio program This American Life, and has had written appearances in The New York Times Magazine, Travel & Leisure, and Rolling Stone, and television appearances on CNN, Fox News, 20/20, and The Colbert Report, among many others. He even has an iPhone application.

The performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. on in Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center and will be followed by a book signing in the Taylor-Meade lobby. Tickets are free for Pacific students, $12 for general admission, and $7 for non-Pacific students with valid ID, and all tickets must be picked up ahead of time at the Taylor-Meade Box Office, which is open Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and can be reached at (503) 352-2918.
