For any of you brave enough to have completed Samuel Delany's Dhalgren
, please come out on Saturday night. If you haven't or only read partway, no worries. I may not have reached the finish line myself.
However, consider this a social occasion under the pre-apocalyptic stars. We are grilling in the backyard of Freebird Books
(123 Columbia Street at Kane in Brooklyn) and welcome all takers.
And we are rigging our projector to show outside a post-apoc film from 1966, five years before Dhalgren was published. It's called The End of August at the Hotel Ozone.
