A fantastic conversation with a living artistic legend. My only suggestions are on the technical side: the lav-ing (microphone on the curator) was really tinny in the beginning. It was distracting and hard to hear her for the first 5-10 minutes. Also, perhaps remind people to silence their phones. A few went off and it took away from what Mr. Ruscha was saying. Other than that, an amazing event!
I feel very privileged to attend a university where I can have class all day, walk down the street, and listen to a world renowned novelist read from his latest book. Ian McEwan was wonderful and very engaging. I loved his novel, Atonement, and I can't wait to read this next novel, The Children Act.
