This Week In Rewards: Week of 1.26

Lots of fun events this week, with a few days off to enjoy on your own. Be sure to clear Thursday night, so much to do all in one place! Have you ever given a lot of thought about the things in your high school history textbook and how they may have affected your outlook on the world? Or maybe about what goes in to writing a historical marker sign? Seemingly mundane, these decisions can be very political and controversial. Hear all about it as James Lowen, noted author visits campus to talk about Lie My Teacher Told me and some of his other works.
