Event: Lee Gutkind: Truckin' with Sam

previous event

The Friends of the University of Adelaide Library invite you to a free author event with Lee Gutkind on Thursday 10 June 2010 at 6.00 for 6.30pm.

Venue: Ira Raymond Exhibition Room, Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide

Lee Gutkind

Lee Gutkind, the Godfather behind Creative Nonfiction, is also a real-life father – what some people call an ‘old new dad’ because he was in his middle forties when his son Sam was born. For five summers Sam and Lee travelled the world together, moving around spontaneously in the spirit of the Grateful Dead’s song Truckin’.

Rock and roll inspired them.

They have written a book about their journeys and their conflicts along the way: a real-life portrait of bonding, personal conflict and adventure.

Father and son will discuss writing and living, Truckin’ with Sam, and the essence of the Creative Nonfiction genre.
