Master American chronicler Tom Wolfe, author of more than a dozen books–among them The Right Stuff, The Bonfire of the Vanities, and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test presents us with a panoramic story of the new America in his most recent novel, Back to Blood.
Wolfe joins screenwriter Howard Rodman for a conversation that spans Wolfe’s seven-decade writing career, from the days of “new journalism” to how he penned the terms “good ol’ boy” and “the right stuff.” Wolfe and his famous white suit take us on a journey through the postmodern era, accompanied by a reading with guest actors and an audience Q & A.
A book signing with Wolfe will immediately follow the program, with book sales courtesy of the Library Store. “Wolfe is one of the greatest literary stylists and social observers of our much observed postmodern era.” (Time) For more information about the Library Foundation of Los Angeles’ ALOUD series, please visit www.lfla.org/aloud.
