Steven T. Jones: "The Tribes of Burning Man"

When: Thu., May 19, 7:30 p.m. 2011

Writing about Burning Man is like fire-dancing about architecture: Most books on the festival -- be they coffee-table photo tomes or essay collections with forewords by Dave Eggers -- fail to capture the breadth of experience available on the playa. In Tribes of Burning Man: How an Experimental City in the Desert is Shaping the New American Counterculture, Steven T. Jones brings a journalist's eye to seven years of immersion in various burner cultures. Welcome him home on Thursday, May 19, at Pegasus Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley). 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or
