Speakers Bureau Presents: Will Shortz

Written by Executive Editor on April 18th, 2011

Speakers Bureau with continue its semester of amazing speakers by bringing The New York Times Crossword editor Will Shortz to campus on Monday 25th.

Shortz has been the NYT’s crossword puzzle editor since 1993, is a weekly guest on NPRs Weekend Edition and was the subject of the 2006 documentary Word Play. Also, he has a awesome mustache. Shortz also edits a series of crossword puzzle books that were prominently featured reading material in the bathrooms of the summer camp I attended from 1999-2007.

While I have your attention, I just want to say that if someone raises their hand during the Q&A section of this event and asks Shortz for help on that day’s crossword I am going to roll my eyes at you so hard my ears will pop.
