Gardner Society meets at Pok-A-Dot for annual reading

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Literature, John Gardner, Gardner Society.

Last year, I couldn't make the John Gardner reading at the Pok-A-Dot because my parents were visiting. This year, I had to cover the Notre Dame game. As I told Bill Kauffman, "Like they say in baseball, maybe next year."

Thanks to Charley Boyd for posting this video of Kauffman opening the 13th annual event.

What a great writer John was. I just read Nickel Mountain a couple of weeks ago and could barely put it down. My favorite novel by him is Mickelsson's Ghost. It has a few dry spells and gets overly intellectual a bit, here and there, but all in all it is mezmerizing literature at its very best.
