Next week, on Tuesday September 15th at 7pm we’ll be having a program at Spring Garden Road called Remembering David Foster Wallace.
This summer, a group of American authors decided to take on the difficulty of Wallace’s most famous novel together and to chronicle their reading of Infinite Jest in a blog. They invited others to join along with them and Infinite Summer
was born. Clearly there is something to having the support of a group in taking on a big book, Infinite Summer has swept through the blogosphere
and been written up in Newsweek, The Globe and Mail
and numerous other news sources.
The program at the library – which co-incidentally is timed almost perfectly with the ending of Infinite Summer – will be presented by Dalhousie
English Professor Dr. David McNeil
Dr. McNeil is a fan of David Foster Wallace, and of Infinite Jest in particular. He’ll be here at the library to talk about Infinite Jest, and David Foster Wallace in general: to offer comments and insight into the author and his writings. If you’re also a fan of David Foster Wallace, you’re sure to find this program interesting.
