Come hear about Stephen King’s short story “Trucks” and the film adaptation “Maximum Overdrive” feat. 80s heartthrob Emilio Estevez!

James Myers will present, exploring such things as: how these works represent the malaise of the 70s and 80s and the rejection of liberal optimism regarding technology; the slow and steady maturation of King’s anti-militarism and his concerns about the nature of humanity/civilization; how cocaine makes you think you are more profound than you are and why Stephen King should never direct movies.

Meet in HUM 327 on Friday Sept. 7th at 7pm.
