Banned Books Week Party with Mike Edison, Herald Price Fahringer, Richard Nash, and Live Music

Wednesday, September 29 , 2010 at 7:00pm

Mike Edison (of High Times magazine, Screw, Hustler, Penthouse, and author of I Have Fun Everywhere I Go), Herald Price Fahringer (First Amendment lawyer and activist), and Richard Nash (publisher named by the Utne Reader this year as one of Fifty Visionaries Changing Your World) headline a presentation celebrating the American Library Association’s “Banned Book Week” and illuminating America’s sordid past of banning, censoring, and otherwise challenging great books. Providing the live soundtrack will be Mike’s band of far-out beatniks, the Space Liberation Pocket Arkestra, featuring Bob Bert (ex-Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, etc) and Mickey Finn (Boss Hog). Plus, play “Name That Banned Book,” from Harry Potter to Naked Lunch, and win fabulous prizes.
