Alan Cheuse at New Dominion

Author and well-know NPR book reviewer Alan Cheuse reads from his new book, To Catch the Lightening, at the New Dominion Bookshop on the Downtown Mall on Thursday, December 2 at 5:30pm.

"The photography and cinema of Edward Curtis exist at the intersection of art, history, anthropology, and technology. He was an essentially American kind of genius, and Alan Cheuse has transformed his life into compelling fiction that digs deep into the mystery and sacrifice and selfishness of creative vision."
–Charles Frazier, author of Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons


We were a little disappointed. For us, the "Greatest Show On Earth" has always been a three ring show. This had the feel of a junior varsity performance. For the same price, we will travel to Richmond next year!

The three ring show can't come to a town as small as Charlottesville, nor would it have fit in the JPJ arena.

Did the Hook realize, by the way, that the clown pictured in the photograph is not a Ringling clown, but retired UVa prof LaVahn Hoh?
