09/17/09 Breaking News! John Krasinski, actor/director/writer for the movie Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, will be joining us to promote the movie (which opens on September 25th). He will read a bit from the book and sign movie posters. How cool is that!
We would like to
extend an invitation to you for our Infinite Summer's End David Foster
Wallace Celebration. It will be a party to celebrate the completion of Infinite Jest
by people all over Los Angeles, the country and the world in
conjunction with Infinite Summer 2009. We also would like to celebrate
the life and work of David Foster Wallace, a writer who so many of us
deeply admired. It will be a celebration to commend you on your achievement, and to
raise our glasses to DFW on his achievement.
What will be happening at this party? We are hoping to have people who knew DFW personally in addition to members of the media and the general public. We will have refreshments (both AA and non-AA versions), custom desserts from StraightOuttaChocolate and cookies which DFW himself enjoyed when he read at Skylight a number of years back. There will be a limited number of custom commemorative tennis balls courtesy of Sideshow Media, publishers of Elegant Complexity (an Infinite Jest guide). We are also hoping to have some sort of promotion for the movie Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, which will be released the following week. We will offer a discount on all books that have more than 800 pages (to fill the massive void that Infinite Jest will have left). The more the merrier, so please join us for what promises to be an amazing evening.
