Update: Nate Silver Lecture TODAY Rescheduled for 5:30 p.m.

New York Times blogger Nate Silver will forecast the presidential election and discuss his forthcoming book in a special lecture (with Q&A) on April 10, 5:30 p.m., in the UMBC library gallery. Please note, this is a new time (previously 4:00).

Silver is a statistician, elections expert and writer, named one of the World’s 100 Most Influential People by TIME Magazine. He emerged as a national figure during the 2008 U.S. presidential election, when his website correctly predicted the winner of all 35 Senate races and the presidential race in 49 of 50 states. In 2010, Politico‘s editor-in-chief listed Silver as one of “The Most Powerful People on Earth” in Forbes Magazine.

This event is part of UMBC’s spring 2012 Social Sciences Forum lecture series.
