Private viewing of David Foster Wallace's personal papers and books (Tue 3/15)
Tuesday, March 15, 2011 from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM (CDT)
There will be two opportunities for the private viewing: Monday 3/14, 9:30am - 10:30am and Tuesday 3/15, 9:30am - 10:30am. These tickets are for the Tuesday event only. To register for the Monday viewing, visit http://davidfosterwallacemon.eventbrite.com
At this free event, thirty people will be given a private "show and tell" of materials from the David Foster Wallace archive in the world-famous Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas by curator of British and American literature Molly Schwartzburg. Anyone can sign up to attend, but South by Southwest Interactive participants who have attended the panel "Infinite Jest and the Internet" are particularly welcome.
