Wolfe in Washington

This week at a thrift store we purchased Bonfire of the Vanities and A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe for probably less than a dollar. (That's my kind of shopping.) I haven't read any Wolfe yet, but I was intrigued after a friend read I Am Charlotte Simmons.

If you live in the Washington, DC metro area, on May 10th at 7PM, Mr. Wolfe will deliver the 2006 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities. According to Brewing Culture, Wolfe's free lecture is open to the public and will be held at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.

To request free tickets send an email with name and address to info@neh.gov

Please take notes and send them to me.

I suggest Wolfe's "Hooking Up," an assortment of essays, etc. He is a very keen observer of society as it exists, as opposed to how it would like to be viewed.

Big difference. I enjoy his work enormously.
