WHAT: REVEALER READING SERIES AT NYU: “MARK DERY reads from, and riffs on, I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts: Drive-by Essays on American Dread, American Dreams, his new book exploring the edges of popular culture. Respondent: STEPHEN DUNCOMBE (Gallatin, NYU).”
WHEN: Wednesday, October 24, 5:30 P.M. until 7:00 P.M.
WHERE: NYU Bookstore 726 Broadway, New York, New York 10003. DIRECTIONS HERE.
NOTE: Please be aware, if you’ve attended any of my other Bad Thoughts-related lectures in the NYC area, in recent months, I’ll be delivering an entirely new talk—in fact, a lecture taking as its point of departure a wrenchingly personal, almost painfully revealing outtake from Bad Thoughts. Then, too, the breezily brilliant Stephen Duncombe, far and away one of my favorite media theorists, will be acting as respondent. Stephen’s participation alone makes this one a must.
