William Finnegan - Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life

Monday, July 27, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A long-time staff writer for The New Yorker, Finnegan has written four books, including Dateline Soweto and Crossing the Line; his honors include two Overseas Press Club Awards. In his new book this veteran observer of socio-cultural change and political events keeps his international focus but turns the lens on himself. Charting a passion for surfing that he’s indulged on beaches from San Francisco and Hawaii to Australia and Asia, Finnegan’s memoir is by turns an adventure, an ethnographic study, and an intellectual coming-of-age story.
