Ken Ilgunas Reading & Signing

22 Oct 2013

Tuesday, October 22 at 7pm
Ken Ilgunas, in the name of not taking on any more debt during a grad school stint at Duke, lived in a Ford Econoline van for two and a half years. The memoir of that adventure, Walden on Wheels, is “his thoroughly endearing account of the whole business,” according to a review in the Wall Street Journal. The review goes on to say that, “This is a guy who starts out sounding like a refugee from ‘Wayne’s World’ and ends up a reasonably credible latter-day Transcendentalist—if you can imagine Seth Rogen channeling Thoreau.” Please join us to hear tales of his adventures!
