Harry Mathews at Penn

by Nick Montfort · , 2:24 pm

Harry Mathews did a wonderful reading last night at Penn at the exhibit Composing. I got to introduce Harry. There was a great turnout, which included – besides the usual suspects from around campus and the friends of the library – Fernando Pereira, the chair of the computer and information science department; Scott, who came in from New Jersey despite grades being due today; Marie Chaix, Harry’s wife; artist Trevor Winkfield, who also was publisher of Harry’s first book, The Ring; and Tina Packer, founder and artistic director of Shakespeare and Co.
