Event Description

On Thursday evening at 7:30 pm, the David Foster Wallace Conference is providing free pizza with a showing of the movie The End of the Tour.  

The movie “The End of the Tour” is a 2015 drama film covering a multiple-day interview by David Lipsky (Jeese Eisenberg) with writer and former ISU professor David Foster Wallace (Jason Segal). The story takes place in Bloomington-Normal, and many of the interviews were conducted at Monical’s Pizza on Main Street.

We hope many of you will come join us and also encourage your undergrads to attend.  For those entirely unfamiliar with Wallace, this is a great opportunity to take a break from homework and grading while also enjoying free pizza from Monical’s.

The event is free, and open only to ISU students/faculty/staff. The evening is hosted by members of the David Foster Wallace Conference committee here at ISU.

RSVP at our Facebook event.

 

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
