Geek Week

What is geeky? What makes you geek out? What does it mean to be a geek? UWM Geek Week is an exploration and celebration of all things geeky.

Celebrate Geek Week 2019: March 4-8

The Geek Week Planning team is excited to announce that Hank Green will be visiting campus this year on October 1!

Join Hank Green and special guest Dessa on tour in support of Hanks debut novel An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. In this multimedia event, Hank and Dessa will talk about their books, answer audience questions, perform live music, and more. All tickets include an autographed copy of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing.

Dessa’s new book, My Own Devices: True Stories from the Road on Music, Science, and Senseless Love, will also be available for sale at the show.

Please note there is no public signing for this event. Mr. Green will not be able to personalize, sign memorabilia, or pose for pictures.

Specially priced tickets for UWM Students, Faculty, and Staff, will go on sale at the UWM Union at the special price of $20 for UWM students and $27 for UWM faculty and staff, including taxes and fees. Limit of two tickets per attendee. ID required. The first 50 student tickets picked up will be invited to a special Meet-and-Greet with Hank before the show.
