The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick Event at Los Angeles Central Library TONIGHT

Pawel Frelik shared this on Facebook earlier about a special event related to the recently published Exegesis by Philip K. Dick:

Monday, November 14, 2011 7:00 PM
[ALOUD] at Central Library
The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick

Panel Discussion with co-editors Jonathan Lethem and Pamela Jackson, Isa Dick Hackett, and Laura Leslie. Moderated by David L. Ulin, book critic, Los Angeles Times

If you are in the LA area, find out all of the details here.

It should be a terrific discussion by the panelists. As I told Pawel, I am unfortunately geographically challenged at the moment, so I will be unable to make it.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.

  1. I wish I could have been there to applaud Jonathan and Pamela on their work, and the work of the annotators and transcribers. I was lucky enough to be involved in the Exegesis project, and gave a talk here in Central PA based on the experience of reading the (digital) folder with fans, students and scholars across the web. Here’s the link to a recording of the talk:

    It’s incredibly exciting to have the volume out, but as the Lethem/Jackson intro makes clear, and citing from Ubik, “this was only the beginning.” This book spearheads an effort to bring the rest of the Exgesis to the light of day, in the only practical way to do so: online.

    Dear Professor Doyle, Thanks for stopping by dynamicsubspace.net and sharing the recording of your talk. I am looking forward to getting a copy of the selected Exegesis, but I am more excited now about the zebrapedia.org that I learned about on your website. This is very exciting stuff, and it is very important to my own research. Best, Jason
