Michael Chabon Visits Santa Fe

Michael Chabon, the only writer ever to win both a Pulitzer Prize and a Hugo Award, will be visiting Santa Fe next weekend, and we have the honor of hosting him at the Jean Cocteau Cinema.

He'll be here this Saturday, September 14. The event starts at 7:00 pm.  He'll be reading from TELEGRAPH AVENUE, his latest novel.  I'll be interviewing Michael as well, talking books and writing and life & times and such.  Followed, of course, by a booksigning.

Admission is free with the purchase of a hardcover book, $5 with the purchase of a paperback.


We have a goodly stock of Chabon titles in stock at the theatre -- not only TELEGRAPH AVENUE (in both hardcover and paperback), but also his Hugo-winning YIDDISH POLICEMAN'S UNION, his Pulitzer Prize-winning THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER AND CLAY, the marvelous swashbuckler GENTLEMAN OF THE ROAD (echoes of Fritz Leiber and Harold Lamb, illustrated by the incomparable Gary Gianni), his book of essays MAPS AND LEGENDS: READING AND WRITING ALONG THE BORDERLANDS, and other titles.


The Cocteau only seats 120, and we're getting a lot of interest in this event, so if you'd like to come join us for an evening with Michael Chabon, phone the theatre at 505-466-5528 ASAP to order a book... and thereby reserve a seat.

You can also order a book, and a seat, through the Cocteau website at

See you at the show!

Boy do I wish I lived in the shire aka Santa Fe.

So jealous of Santa Fe for having such an amazing sci-fi, fantasy friendly cinema, you're great George. Here in Madrid we've about 6 times Santa Fe population and still, we have to wait till some special event to have something like that (I'm not going to be mean, we have events, but it's just not the same, we don't have "a place to go"). So again, great job, hope some day I go there and can enjoy a antique sci-fi movie or a great fantasy/sci-fi author reading.

I had no idea Michael Chabon was so cute.

Plowing through my reading list as fast as I can to get to Kavalier and Clay, which has languished in the middle third of my list for freaking ever. It seems whenever I get close, I finally catch something I've been looking for at the used book store like Wild Cards. The owner says they can reserve a copy for me, but that isn't very sporting. I like the hunt.

It sounds important
will you be recording it? so people like me, (from far away) can watch the interview. I'm curious about your questions. =]

I live in South Africa. A bit of a drive and swim to get there, but sounds awesome. Would be nice to have live streaming perhaps.

I love The Yiddish Policeman's Union. Are the Coen brothers still planning to film the novel?

Ser, there's something off with your font size on this entry. Looks like it's at size 5... i kinda dig it, though. gods know how much I like enormous, unapologetic font sizes on book covers.

Mr. Chabon is a damn fine writer, and I would have loved to attend this. It's right up my alley.

I need to read his "Mysteries of Pittsburgh". Shame HBO didn't pick-up his pilot "Hobgoblin".
