Sponsored by the Coastal Awakening organization in anticipation of the SLO Film Festival's
film series on Hunter S. Thompson, Gonzo Journalist, the San Luis Obispo Public Library
will host a talk by David S. Wills, editor of the literary journal Beatdom and author of
Scientologist! William S. Burroughs and the 'Weird Cult', World Citizen: Allen Ginsberg as
Traveller, and High White Notes: The Rise and Fall of Gonzo Journalism. Wills' talk will
explore how Thompson and other Beat writers epitomize the spirit of contemplation and
creative alchemy that we honor here on California’s central coast.
