By the time most of you read these words, I’ll be somewhere between New York and Lubbock, Texas, where I’m lecturing on “The Future of Theater” at Texas Tech University and paying a visit to the Buddy Holly Center, which is located on—get this—Crickets Avenue.
Getting to Lubbock from New York requires that you go somewhere else first, so I’ll be spending two and a half hours en route cooling my heels in the Dallas airport. I’m bringing with me a copy of George, the first volume of Emlyn Williams’ biography, which I trust will keep me happily occupied.
I’m speaking under the auspices of Texas Tech’s Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, and should you happen to be in or near Lubbock, the public is invited to attend. The show starts at 5:30 on Wednesday and admission is free.
