We highly recommend this one. Should be an amazing event, with Academy-Award Nominee, Peter Weller (Naked Lunch), for an evening of art, readings, happenings and performances to support the new documentary William S. Burroughs: A Man Within, directed by Yony Leyser. Also appearing are Editor & WSB Estate Executor James Grauerholz, Poet Anne Waldman, Producer Hal Willner, Poet John Giorno, Beat-Scholar Tony Trigilio, and even former Weatherman, Bill Ayers!
Also featuring a rare exhibition of William Burroughs’ paintings and drawings on paper, and a special preview-screening of the documentary trailer.
5:30 pm to 9:30 pm
