Join KCPT and KU Libraries for a special screening of William S. Burroughs: A Man Within on Friday, April 29, 2011.
An iconoclast who himself became an icon, former Lawrence, KS resident William Burroughs explored the outer boundaries of culture and identity in the 1950s. His work was vilified by conservatives and banned by the U.S. government, but emerged to influence artists for generations to come. The film by director Yony Leyser uses never before seen footage of Burroughs as well as interviews with friends and colleagues.
Prior to the film, please join us for a reception and opportunity to view items from KU libraries’ collections which pertain to the author, who lived the last 16 years of his life in Lawrence.
