Davy Rothbart, founder of the wildly popular underground magazine Found (also a book and website) weaves some of his most fascinating finds into an energetic presentation. Join Rothbart for his entertaining elaboration on the stories behind the cast-off notes and letters plucked from the nation's subways, schools, streets, and sidewalks.
Davy Rothbart, creator of Found Magazine, is a collector, author, filmmaker, and frequent contributor to the public radio show This American Life. The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas, a collection of
Rothbart's short stories, was published in 2005 by Simon & Schuster, and Geffen Records recently released Rothbart's documentary film How We Survive about the punk rock band Rise Against. Rothbart lives in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
An exhibit of Found items will be on display in the Painted Bride Gallery throughout the Festival; audience members are invited to contribute their own discoveries to Founds collection of anonymous ephemera.
