October Book: Katerina by James Frey
From the New York Times bestselling author of A Million Little Pieces and Bright Shiny Morning comes Katerina, James Frey’s highly anticipated new novel set in 1992 Paris and contemporary Los Angeles.
A kiss, a touch. A smile and a beating heart. Love and sex and dreams, art and drugs and the madness of youth. Betrayal and heartbreak, regret and pain, the melancholy of age. Katerina, the explosive new novel by America’s most controversial writer, is a sweeping love story alternating between 1992 Paris and Los Angeles in 2018.
At its center are a young writer and a young model on the verge of fame, both reckless, impulsive, addicted, and deeply in love. Twenty-five years later, the writer is rich, famous, and numb, and he wants to drive his car into a tree, when he receives an anonymous message that draws him back to the life, and possibly the love, he abandoned years prior. Written in the same percussive, propulsive, dazzling, breathtaking style as A Million Little Pieces, Katerina echoes and complements that most controversial of memoirs, and plays with the same issues of fiction and reality that created, nearly destroyed, and then recreated James Frey in the American imagination.

Searching for Tao Canyon: Pat Morrow and Jeremy Schmidt

Event Date:
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 
Doors at 7pm, Show starts at 7:30pm
McKim Theatre, Kimberley

Searching For Tao Canyon: Over the period of a decade, beginning in 1975, the subterranean world of the American desert began to offer up its secrets to photographer Pat Morrow, Jeremy Schmidt and Art Twomey. Long before the region was “discovered” by modern day adventurers and instagrammed nearly to death, the trio set out to explore and document the slickrock canyons (some for the very first time) that radiate across the surface of the parched Colorado Plateau.

In their newly released book, Searching For Tao Canyon, the dirtbag trio embark on a quest to find the perfect slot canyon in America’s southwest—what they call “slickrock Xanadu.”

The book, and the presentation, is a tribute to Art Twomey whose early conservation work in the Kimberley area helped lead to Wildsight’s organization and mandate today. Tickets are $13 in advance HERE ,$15 at the door.
