Geoff Dyer, White Sands


Harold M. Williams Auditorium

This event is sold out, but will be live streamed on YouTube »

Two irrepressible personalities—genre-defying author Geoff Dyer and actor-curator-writer-comedian Steve Martin—discuss Dyer's latest book, White Sands: Experiences from the Outside World. The experiences recounted by Dyer take us from Tahiti in the footsteps of Gauguin to the Watts Towers; from Walter De Maria's Lightning Fields in New Mexico to Venice, California, his new home. With his usual wry wit, Dyer offers observations on travel, awareness, and stepping outside of ourselves. This talk is a part of the Getty's Art of Writing series.
