An Evening with Chuck Klosterman

Chuck Klosterman
Thursday, November 10 ~ City Opera House

Best-selling humorist and pop culture writer Chuck Klosterman has attracted an enormous following for his clever, sardonic essays on American entertainment and life. A long time rock and sports reporter for magazines including Spin, GQ, Esquire, New York Times Magazine and the Washington Post, Klosterman fi rst gained national attention in 2001 for his debut collection of essays entitled “Fargo Rock City.” His second book, “Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs,” became a national best-seller and earned Klosterman the title “the voice of his generation.” Subsequent essay collections including “Killing Yourself to Live,” “Chuck Klosterman IV” and “Eating the Dinosaur” cemented Klosterman’s status as one of the foremost pop culture writers of the twenty-fi rst century. In 2008, Klosterman’s fi rst novel “Downtown Owl” was published to glowing reviews, with Entertainment Weekly calling the author “an entertaining guy, capable of real insight and artistry.” This October, Klosterman will release his highly anticipated second novel, “The Visible Man.” Kirkus Reviews has praised the novel for its daring and ambition, saying it’s “immersed as always in popular culture, but rises to the challenge of creative fiction.” Klosterman will join Doug Stanton for an entertaining conversation about his work, and views of American pop culture. This event will conclude with a reception and author book signing.
