Reading and Conversation – T.C. Boyle

May 16 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

The wild and wildly popular author T.C. Boyle returns to the Museum to read/perform one of his most topical short stories. Santa Barbara’s favorite so called “Punk Laureate,” a prolific and provocative spinner of stories and satire, is also a notoriously extroverted performer. “I enjoy demystifying the relationship between the reader and the writer,” says Boyle. “It’s not a holy religion.” To add to the mix, his daughter Kerrie will once again join him on stage.

The recipient of several prestigious awards, including the O. Henry Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, Boyle wears his laurels lightly saying, “I would rather get out and shake my stuff.” And when he shakes? “If I can get the reader to laugh, also be moved, then I’m going where I want to go.”

The reading marks the release in paperback of Blue Skies.

Book signing to follow.
