Film $5 – Tickets here
Join us for a very special evening of books and film with Hunter S. Thompson‘s only son, Juan F. Thompson, author of the acclaimed new memoir, Stories I Tell Myself: Growing Up with Hunter S. Thompson.
We begin with a conversation and book signing, and end with a screening of Fear and Loathing in Gonzovision, a rarely seen 1978 documentary.
“A tender but tough tale of growing up as the son of the fearsome, charismatic and unrestrained writer, Hunter S. Thompson. At the peak of his career, Hunter was a terrifying and neglectful parent, wreaking all kinds of damage on his family, but as his talent waned he learned to be a dutiful father, and doting grandparent. All of this is observed acutely in painful and loving detail, in a book that will be seen as an essential piece of the Thompson history and also in its own right as a classic memoir of growing up weird.”
