mental_floss book tour hits UAB tomorrow

So if you’re hungry for some new tidbits of knowledge, a homegrown fountain of trivia is hoping you’ll head on over to UAB’s Alys Stephens Center tomorrow evening to get your fix.

The Mental Floss History of the World: An Irreverent Romp through Civilization’s Best Bits¬†book tour stops in Birmingham at the center’s Sirote Theatre starting at 7 p.m. So if you’ve never seen Will Pearson but want to make sure you know who he is, check out the post on the magazine’s blog (which also has dates and locations for those of you that aren’t in town but still want in on the action).
