Two UC San Diego Author Appearances
Signing & Discussing Their Books
Inside the UCSD Bookstore
First Floor General Book Department
Greg Alder, author of The Mountain School. Wednesday, February 12, 4PM. The Kingdom of Lesotho is a mountainous enclave in southern Africa. It's isolated, steeped in tradition, and home to few outsiders. The people, known as Basotho, are respected in the area as the only tribe never to be defeated by European colonizers. Greg Alder arrived in Tsoeneng as the village’s first foreign resident since 1966. In that year, the Canadian priest who had been living there was robbed and murdered in his quarters. Set up as a Peace Corps teacher at the village’s secondary school, Alder finds himself incompetent in so many unexpected ways. How do you keep warm in this place where it snows but there is no electricity? For how long can dinners of cornmeal and leaves sustain you? Tsoeneng is a world apart from his home in America. But he persists in becoming familiar with the new lifestyle. He learns to speak the strange local tongue and is eventually invited to participate in initiation rites. Yet even as he seems accepted into the Tsoeneng fold, he sees how much of an outsider he will always remain – and perhaps want to remain. Greg Alder lives in San Diego and teaches at UCSD’s English Language Institute. order (858)534-5778
Uri Gneezy, author of The Why Axis: Hidden Motives and the Undiscovered Economics of Everyday Life. Friday, February 21, 4PM. Based on groundbreaking original research, The Why Axis is a colorful examination of why people do what they do - observed through the lens of incentives that can spur people to achieve. Uri Gneezy is the Epstein/Atkinson Endowed Chair in Behavioral Economics, and Professor of Economics & Strategy UCSD’s Rady School of Management. order (858)534-5778

If you are a first time SLR user or a long-time SLR enthusiast who has shot still images for years and wonder how to really begin to use these new features to expand your image-making, this seminar may be just what you are looking for: understand the foundation of video camera operations, discover how the video process works from pre-visualizing before shooting through editing and creating a finished product that's ready for anything from the web to a high-definition DVD disk, learn the different camera settings and their impact on video such as frames per second, different resolution choices, and discuss optimum memory cards for video use.
