But will we get to burn stuff afterwards?

Author David Hajdu will be at the Elmer R Anderson Library tonight on the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus, to give a talk and sign copies of his books. His most recent work, The 10cent Plague, covers how comic books helped to change the cultural landscape of America in the ’50s, regarding the rise in teen culture and the blame that comic books received for juvenile delinquency. He has previously written biographies of Billy Strayhorn, and Bob Dylan & Joan Baez, which I have yet to read, but may have to get copies to get signed anyway.

Copies of his books will be for sale at the dessert reception following the talk, thanks to Red Balloon bookshop.

The event is to honor John Borger and his gift of 40,000 comic books to the U of M libraries.
