Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride, My Dinner with Andre, Toy Story) appears in conversation with local playwright and professor Margaret Baldwin at Horizon Theatre on Thursday, August 31st at 7:00 PM to read and discuss Night Thoughts. This is a ticketed event. Tickets include a signed copy of the book from A Cappella Books.
Although he is guided and inspired by the people he respects, and despite the insufficiency of his knowledge and experience—an insufficiency shared by most (or all) other humans, Wallace Shawn can’t see any real alternative to trying to figure out his own answers to the most essential questions about the world he lives in.
Having recently passed the age of seventy, before which he found it difficult to piece together more than a few fragments of understanding, Shawn would like to pass on anything he’s learned before death or dementia close down the brief window available to him, but he may not be ready yet.
