This FYI selection is in conjunction with the exhibit Ralph Steadman: A Retrospective, on display at the Central Library through Sept. 8, 2019. Steadman frequently collaboratored with Hunter S. Thompson for 30 years, providing exquisitely outrageous illustrations that were perfectly suited to Thompson’s gonzo writing - including the iconic drawings featured in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Following the FYI Book Group discussion, attendees will have an opportunity to tour the Central Library's two galleries featuring highlights of Steadman's work throughout his career.
