Maggie speaking Monday afternoon at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Why does electric infrastructure affect our ability to make energy more sustainable? How is the electric grid like a lazy river at the water park? And why should you never, ever go fishing with a salesman? Learn the answers to these questions—and more—when I speak at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Monday, March 12. My presentation starts at 3:00 pm in room 355 of the Mechanical Engineering Building. It's free, and open to the public. (Can't make it to the speech? You can also find out the answers to these questions by reading my book, Before the Lights Go Out.)


  1. Many years ago it was my job to help in hosting speakers there (that very room).  Two main duties: hang around in case something needed doing and taking home the ubiquitous giant fruit and cheese platter afterwards.  My boss insisted it not go to waste.

    Seriously, my job included eating cheese for days after any event.  So on behalf of whoever might have that job today: please eat the cheese!

    1. I was going to ask if any Hungry Mutants wanted to grab dinner after the talk, but it sounds like there will be plenty of food there. At least some cheese.
