Tickets to attend George Takei keynote address


The University of Utah MUSE (My U Signature Experience) Project will host George Takei as a keynote speaker on April 21, 2022. The event will take place at Kingsbury Hall at 12 p.m. and a book signing will follow. Tickets for both students and the general public are free but required to attend.

Student tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 29 with code MUSE online or with UIDs at the Kingsbury box office.

Tickets for staff, faculty and the general public will be available beginning at 10 a.m. on April 5 online and at the box office, no code needed.

Each year, MUSE chooses a theme and centerpiece books as the basis for its educational work. “Rebuilding” is the 2020-21 theme, and one accompanying book is Takei’s graphic novel, They Called Us Enemy, a New York Times Bestseller that chronicles his family’s experience in Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. It tells a harrowing story of the uprooting and imprisonment of his family for the duration of the war. Free copies of They Called Us Enemy are available now at the MUSE office in the Sill Center at 195 Central Campus Drive.
