For those of you who may have missed it, The Wittliff Collections has a new exhibit, Cormac McCarthy: Unveiling a Literary Legend, that opened on September 3. The exhibition runs through December 19. From their website:
Acclaimed as one of America’s most powerful writers, Cormac McCarthy has crafted some of the finest novels of our time, including All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men, and The Road, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. The Wittliff Collections draws from its extensive archive of McCarthy materials to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the meticulous creative process of this world-renowned author.
To celebrate the exhibition and the publication of Josyph’s Cormac McCarthy’s House: Reading McCarthy Without Walls (Southwestern Writers Collection Series, Wittliff Collections at Texas State University), the Collections will host a Reception, Performance, and Talk with Peter Josyph on Thursday, September 18, 2014. Again, from the Collections’ website:
New York-based writer, artist, actor, and filmmaker Peter Josyph left audiences spellbound when he last performed at the Wittliff Collections in 2010 as the keynote speaker for the Cormac McCarthy Society. Since then, the Wittliff published Josyph’s book Cormac McCarthy’s House: Reading McCarthy Without Walls (Southwestern Writers Collection Series, Wittliff Collections at Texas State University) in its literary series with the University of Texas Press. To celebrate his book and the Wittliff’s fall archives exhibition, Cormac McCarthy: Unveiling a Literary Legend, Josyph returns to dazzle and inform audiences seeking to understand the spirit of Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy. Josyph’s books will be for sale at the event courtesy of the University Bookstore, and he will sign books after the program.
