CHUCK KLOSTERMAN
7:30 p.m., McCastlain Hall, UCA. Free.

There's a Facebook group called “If Chuck Klosterman spit in my face, I'd stop taking showers.” At press time, it had 950 members. Those and other rabid fans will have an opportunity to see the journalist, cultural critic and now novelist (his debut, “Downtown Owl,” came out in September) up close and personal on Tuesday and Wednesday as he serves, briefly, as an Artist in Residence at UCA. For around an hour and a half, he'll lecture or read on Tuesday, take questions and sign books. Wednesday, he'll lead master classes about the writing process, open to the public, in Winifred L. Thompson 331 at 10 a.m. and McCastlain 302 at 11 a.m. Over the course of five books (two of essays, two of creative non-fiction and the novel) and countless columns and articles for the likes of the Believer, ESPN.com, Esquire, GQ and the New York Times, Klosterman's written about everything from the Celtics/Lakers rivalry to Internet porn. Expect a gaggle of pop culture obsessives, this one included.
