Join KCBX for a very special event on March 9, when NPR's Kelly McEvers returns to San Luis Obispo with NPR’s Climate Correspondent, Nathan Rott.

It's an opportunity to get close to those whose reporting helps you to understand your world.

The event begins at 7 pm and will be at SLO Brew Rock (855 Aerovista, San Luis Obispo). Tickets are $35 for general admission and $20 for students. A limited number of VIP tickets ($100) are available for a pre-event social with Rott and McEvers.
