Robert Stone reads from Outerbridge Reach and Ken Kesey reads from Sailor Song, followed by audience Q&A.

Our friend Thomas Beller has written a very touching remembrance of Robert Stone, set at this reading above, for The New Yorker:

Thinking about the reading at the Y this week after hearing of Stone’s death, it occurred to me that I should look up what, exactly, he had read in “Outerbridge Reach” that got him so emotional—what it was that Browne had scrawled onto the shack with his white stick. Looking in my copy of the book, I found this: “Be True to the Dreams of Your Youth.”
