Justin Peters + James Marcus

Slate correspondent Justin Peters comes to Strand to launch The Idealist: Aaron Swartz and the Rise of Free Culture on the Internet. He’ll be talking with James Marcus, author, translator, and deputy editor of Harper’s, about Swartz’s tumultuous life as a coding wunderkind, his co-founding and development of Reddit and Creative Commons, and the federal case against him that allegedly pushed him to suicide.
