Don't forget that the Harry Ransom Centre's David Foster Wallace Symposium kicks off with, "Everything and More: A Conversation About David Foster Wallace" which will be available via live webcast on Thursday April 5th from 7pm (Austin time).

In Australia this equates to 10am on Friday April 6th, perfect! I'll be watching, and I hope you'll join me. I'll update this post with links to a couple of places where you can join in for a live chat/discussion while we watch.

Even better, it appears that all panels from Saturday's session will be webcast too. It's going to be a long night for me on Friday! (Day 2 starts at 1am on Sat for me)

Here's the pdf version of the program.
