Christian Lander: Stuff White People Like

Christian Lander Date: 30 Dec, 2010


When Christian Lander started a blog as a joke he never imagined that his inside joke would turn into a New York Times Bestseller and a piece of internet history with more than 60 million hits to his site. Here Lander investigates, explains and offers advice for anyone wanting to interact with the caucasian persuasion and needing to understand their ways.

Christian Lander was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He earned his degree in English from McGill University, his Masters in Film from the University of Arizona, and half of a PhD from Indiana University. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Jess.

Christian Lander will be speaking on Thursday 22 October, 6.30 - 8pm, at the Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE. This event marks the publication of Lander's latest book Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions.| Chaired by Charlie Beckett.

The event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. Any queries, email or phone 020 7955 6043.
