Summer of Kubrick Announced!

Article by staff

Nothing says summer like sunshine, pools, lazy days, and…Stanley Kubrick?

The work of one of history’s greatest directors comes to Brazos Bookstore for Summer of Kubrick! This summer, through partnerships with Alamo Drafthouse, MFAH Films, and Rice Cinema, we will put film and literature in conversation as we explore Kubrick’s work. Join us for parties, book groups, screenings, and—of course, as Kubrick would’ve wanted it—surprises.

Why Kubrick at a bookstore? Because Kubrick is the world’s most literary director. The absurd paranoia of DR. STRANGELOVE, the sci-fi intellectualism of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, the frenzied dystopia of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, the ambiguous horror of THE SHINING, the grunting military life of FULL METAL JACKET, the muted dreamscape of EYES WIDE SHUT: all of these familiar Kubrick worlds began as books by authors both popular and obscure, and we'll read them, from Stephen King to Vladimir Nabokov.

So kick back with Stanley Kubrick and Brazos Bookstore for some reading and watching that’s pleasurable without making you turn off your brain.
