Jonathan Lethem & Raymond Pettibon

Friday Nov 22, 2013 7:30 PM to 7:30 PM This is a past program

Jonathan Lethem, the Roy E. Disney Professor of Creative Writing at Pomona College, is the critically acclaimed author of Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude, Chronic City, and Dissident Gardens. He recently collaborated with Raymond Pettibon on a monographic survey of the artist’s work, which embraces a spectrums of American “high” and “low” culture, from the deviations of marginal youth to art history, literature, sports, religion, politics, and sexuality.
