August 13: Theme: “Spaghetti Westerns”
Featuring Benjamin Whitmer! Benjamin Whitmer was born and raised on back-to-the-land communes and counterculture enclaves ranging from Southern Ohio to Upstate New York. One of his earliest and happiest memories is of standing by the side of a country road with his mother, hitchhiking to parts unknown. Since then, he’s been a factory grunt, a vacuum salesman, a convalescent, a high-school dropout, a graduate student, a semi-truck loader, an activist, a kitchen-table gunsmith, a squatter, a college professor, a dishwasher, a technical writer and a petty thief. His second novel, Cry Father, is coming in September from Gallery Books.
With Host Bryan Jansing! Bryan Jansing is an international, award-winning author. Some of his works include, “Like Clumps of Dried Dirt,” “Bridge Party,” and “A Number on Reality,” in Fast Forward Vol. 3, TheMix Tape (2010), which was the finalist for the Colorado Book Awards.
