If you were planning to go to the Northwestern University campus Friday afternoon to hear an address by former Vice President Joseph Biden, you’re out of luck, as the event is sold out, but you can still catch it on your personal computer.
University spokesperson Taryn Tawoda, Associate Director, External Communications, explained Wednesday that the venue, at the new headquarters building of the Kellogg School of Management, is unable to accommodate the demand for the talk, so access is limited primarily to Kellogg faculty and students, plus the media.
However, if you click on this link, beginning at about 5:15 p.m., the event is being live-streamed and can be viewed by anyone with wifi access on a digital device.
The former vice president is expected to talk about the unequal economic growth across America’s cities and towns. The event is being coordinated with the help of Kellogg visiting associate professor Ben Harris, who served as Biden’s chief economist and economic adviser.
