Augusto Bastos Live!

Tomorrow night - Wednesday, October 29th, at 6:30 pm - Professor Augusto Bastos will be sharing stories from his incredible life in a conversation with Darren O'Donnell at the Power Plant. This talk is the last event in the Born Out of Pleasure special events series that was programmed in conjunction with Harrell Fletcher's collaborative show of the same name. And it's free!

I spent 10 days with Augusto and highly recommend this talk. He is a smart and funny man who has seen and lived through a lot, and has so much to share. (The photo above is of Augusto as a young man with one of his seven children. Video footage of Augusto in a rickshaw we hired to take him to a dinner can be seen here.) Getting to know him was such a highlight of that project for me, and I suspect it will be a special thing for you, too. So come!
