Gonzo Fest 2017 moved to the library to focus on the literary HST as well as on music. I was fortunate enough to participate in a very very lively, informed panel, consisting of Ron Whitehead, poet and HST friend; Hunter's son Juan; William McKeen, head of journalism studies at Boston University; myself; and Rory Feehan, who is writing a PhD dissertation on "the Hunter Figure" in Ireland. What a group. What a skilled moderator, Michael Lindenberger (Dallas Morning News). What a blast. Very insightful back-and-forth. I was asked what it was like to work with Hunter on Hell's Angels. An early Gonzo event, as I explained. Which you can read about in Hunter's own words in Keep This Quiet!
Below are photos from Gonzo Fest Louisville, April 2016. Juan Thompson presented his new book, Stories I Tell Myself. Watch for more news to come!
