In our quest to keep you abreast of cool Twin Peaks-related events, we just came across another one.
The Madison Public Library in Madison, Wisconsin is having the awesomely named “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” event this Friday, February 6. The Wisconsin State Journal describes the event as “a night to celebrate the David Lynch mystery through food, art and conversation.” I’ve never met the director, but those seem like three pillars of which he’d approve.
Activities include author Brad Dukes hosting a Q&A session on his book, Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks, as well as artists doing screen printing to create unique items inspired by the show. Pie, doughnuts, and, we assume, coffee, will also be part of the fun.
We should also talk about Twin Peaks cosplay, because attendees are encouraged to come to the library in costume, and a photo booth will be there to capture the best looks. As we’ve said before in this space, cosplay based on the show is really going to take off in 2016. Might as well get a head start on it now.
“The Owls Are Not What They Seem” begins at 8 pm on Friday night, with Dukes kicking off his talk at 9 pm. For folks in the Madison area thinking of attending, more info is available at wisconsinbookfestival.org.
And if you’ve got a festival or other event celebrating Twin Peaks coming up, be sure to let us know about it!
