Newsflash! I’ll be speaking about Kirby tomorrow, Monday, April 2nd, at my alma mater, the University of Connecticut—thanks to my friend and colleague Kate Capshaw Smith, her English 6200 seminar, and the UConn Department of English!
Wow. I’m really looking forward to this!
The topic of my talk? Well, besides joining Kate and 6200 for a discussion of Morrison, Quitely, and Grant’s We3, I’ll be presenting (gasp!) an outtake from Hand of Fire—an examination of Kamandi, The Last Boy on Earth, my own boyhood favorite and a subject I am absolutely not done with.
My talk will take place at 7:00pm as part of English 6200, in CLAS (Liberal Arts and Sciences), Room 216.
