If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, I hope you'll join me tomorrow evening, August 8, for "Boing Boing Presents: The Beats' Influence on Underground Publishing," a panel discussion at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. The program is part of "Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg," an intimate portrait of the Beat generation in the form of Ginsberg's snapshots. I'm looking forward to interviewing several personal friends and inspirations on stage, starting at 6:30pm. The panel is free with museum admission! My guests include:
* V. Vale, founder of Search & Destroy and RE/Search
* RU Sirius, founder of Mondo 2000, High Frontiers, and Reality Hackers
* Ron Turner, founder of Last Gasp Books
* Layla Gibbon, editor of Maximum Rocknroll
