David Vann's recently released book, LAST DAY ON EARTH, has been gaining attention in the news. Here are some highlights:
DV: I wanted to write an article about how armed suburban youth are. I inherited my father’s guns after he killed himself with a gun, when I was 13, and I led a double life in which I was a straight-A student by day, then wandering our neighborhood at night with his .300 magnum rifle (a rifle for hunting bears), shooting out streetlights and sighting in on the neighbors through their windows. I think it’s frightening how many kids and teens have access to guns in America, so I wanted to write about that. But my editor at Esquire suggested I look at Steve’s story, since he was an A student and everyone seemed very surprised by his shooting.

After Cogan went to Spartanburg to meet Lane and discuss his idea, he learned about Lane’s plans for his next book, to be called MY PADDLE TO THE SEA. Lane wanted to put in his boat in the creek near his back yard just outside Spartanburg and follow the path of the water to the Atlantic Ocean, a 300 mile trip.
Cogan and fellow filmmaker Tom Byars were able to capture much of this journey on film, and their completed work, River Time, provides a surprisingly different counterpart to the story of the trip as told by Lane, full of stunning visual depictions of the river and an outside perspective of Lane and his thinking about the relationship of humans to the environment.
On Wednesday, November 16, both filmmaker and author will participate in the Athens premiere of “River Time,” to be held at Cine at 7 pm. Lane will read from his newly released book, Cogan will screen the thirty minute film, and the two together will discuss the outcomes of their parallel projects. The event is free and open to the public, and copies of Lane’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
Wednesday, November 16, 7 pm
Cine, 234 West Hancock Ave., Athens

Monday, November 28, 7 pm – Spartanburg, SC
