Juan Thompson (Son of Hunter S.) Author Talk

January 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Denver author Juan Thompson, who grew up in Woody Creek, Colorado with his father, Hunter S. Thompson, will read from, discuss, and sign his new memoir Stories I Tell Myself: Growing Up with Hunter S. Thompson ($26.95 Knopf) “A tender but tough tale of growing up as the son of the fearsome, charismatic and unrestrained writer, Hunter S. Thompson. At the peak of his career, Hunter was a terrifying and neglectful parent, wreaking all kinds of damage on his family, but as his talent waned he learned to be a dutiful father, and doting grandparent. All of this is observed acutely in painful and loving detail, in a book that will be seen as an essential piece of the Thompson history and also in its own right as a classic memoir of growing up weird.” -Jann Wenner, co-founder and publisher of Rolling Stone

Book signings and author talks at Tattered Cover are free to attend and open to the public.
