Book Club with Laphams Quarterly:
We have asked our curator Greg Dulli to pick a group of books to recommend to attendees, and you can see the titles Greg has chosen below. Our friends at Laphams Quarterly are helping us run the book club for the event on the Queen Of Hearts.
Lapham’s Quarterly sets the story of the past in the frame of the present. Four times a year, the editors choose a question current in the headlines—foreign war, financial panic, the whereabouts of God—and bring answers to it from authors whose powers of observation and expression have passed the test of time. On the stands now: “Politics.” Just in time for the 2012 presidential general election, LQ explores the modes of power, citizenship, and government that have organized our societies from ancient Athens to contemporary America. Among the contributors setting the scene are Thomas Paine, Mao Zedong, George Packer, Montesquieu, Richard Nixon, Albert Camus, and Anna Politkovskaya.
Greg Dulli has chosen:
The Black Dahlia (author: James Ellroy / publisher: Grand Central Publishing / 1987)
A Fraction of the Whole (author: Steve Toltz / publisher: Spiegel & Grau / 2008)
Geek Love (author: Katherine Dunn / publisher: Vintage Books / 1989)
Nobody Move (author: Denis Johnson / publisher: Picador / 2009)
Play It As It Lays (author: Joan Didion / publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux / 1970)
Joining the LQ editors to discuss Geek Love on Saturday will be special guests Evan Michelson & Mike Zohn, stars of the Science Channel program Oddities and owners of the Lower East Side oddities and antiquities store Obscura. And on Sunday Julie Klausner, author of I Don’t Care About Your Band and host of the podcast How Was Your Week will take part in the discussion of Play It As It Lays.

JEFF The Brotherhood replace Chavez:
Sadly our friends Chavez have had to cancel their appearance on the Saturday of the event - they send out their apologies to "the number one fans in the world." Greg Dulli has picked out the hotly tipped JEFF The Brotherhood who have saved the day by joining the Saturday line-up as a replacement.
ATP’s James King invites you to come and sample rare single cask Scotch Whiskies throughout the weekend. Drop by the Merchandise stall for more information & to sign up.
