Classical Whack

Buckley's creative use of language will be explored as "Lord Buckley Takes A Whack at The Classics," Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Tuolumne County Library on Greenley Rd. in Sonora.

Beginning at 7 pm, the program recreates a Buckley performance during the height of his career in the 1950's. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

Local performance artist David Allen Simerley, who will portray Buckley at the library, studied storytelling at the Prometheus Psychodrama Theater in Palo Alto under Gurney Norman, one of the original Merry Pranksters.

A copy of "Dig Infinity - the Life and Art of Lord Buckley" by Oliver Trager is available for loan at the library.
