A write up in WalesOnline about the Dinefwr Literature Festival being held in Wales this weekend. The festival’s organiser points out how she’s looking forward to the Brautigan Book Club & Ianthe being there on Sunday as she’s a fan of Richard’s work.
There’s a couple things happening this month for those of us who appreciate Richard Brautigan so if you happen to live near anything listed below, check it out & then report back to let us know how it was!
Are there any other brautigan events happening? If so, let me know.
London – Jan 25th – The Brautigan Book Club is a face-to-face monthly meeting to discuss a book & preform other relate cool things. Their first event will be discussing ‘The Abortion’. Details here
San Diego California – Jan 27th – the Book Noir club will discuss “In Watermelon Sugar” at 1 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, 330 N. Coast Highway, Oceanside. (760) 435-5600
UPDATE: the book release has been pushed back til April.
there’s a new book about Brautigan on its way!
Jubille Hitchhiker is due in January 2012 and aims to ‘connect the Brautigan known to his fans with the man who ended his life so abruptly in 1984 while revealing the close ties between his writing and the actual events of his life. Part history, part biography, and part memoir this etches the portrait of a man destroyed by his genius’.
It’s weighing in at a massive 896 pages too!
I certainly hope they come out with a e-book/kindle version.
