Why I Read

National Library Symbol Why I Read by Adam Sockel, Marketing Specialist & co-host of the Professional Book Nerds podcast

The Pale King – BookTalk at BSC

pale-kingJoin us for BookTalk at BSC 2017!

The Pale King by David Foster Wallace

Sunday, March 5th, 1 to 3 p.m.

LEA 204 (BSC Library’s second floor conference room in LEA Hall)


Dr. AnnMarie Kajencki, BSC English Professor, will lead the last of the three BookTalk discussions exploring the theme “The Prize That Wasn’t: 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction”.

As you work on your own income taxes, this tale of the agents at the IRS Regional Examination Center in Peoria, Illinois, will resonate. “The agents … appear ordinary to newly arrived trainee David Foster Wallace. But as he immerses himself in a routine so tedious and repetitive that new employees receive boredom-survival training, Wallace learns of the extraordinary variety of personalities drawn to this strange calling. And he has arrived at a moment when forces within the IRS are plotting to eliminate what little humanity and dignity the work still has.” — Book jacket

The Pale King was unfinished when the author died in 2008. Wallace’s editor, Michael Pietsch, pieced the book together from “hundreds and hundreds of pages of his novel in progress …” (The Pale King, Editor’s Note, p. x)

BookTalk at BSC series books are available at local libraries and from booksellers. Discussions are open to all. For more information, call 224-5450.

The 18th annual series is funded by the BSC Library and a grant from the BSC Foundation.  For more information, visit the online guide.
