Thursday

Thomas Goltz, born in Japan and raised in Fargo, might well be among the most adventurous spirits to burst out of North Dakota. He's made a name for himself covering the bloody war in Chechnya and other post-Soviet conflicts. But before launching his journalistic career, Goltz was a twenty-something would-be actor with a taste for trouble and the drama of William Shakespeare. In the late 1970s, he hitchhiked through Africa in the hopes of reuniting with a brother-turned-guitar-player in a Kenyan band. Along the way, he tried to finance his low-budget mission with one-man Shakespeare shows that mostly went unappreciated by his audiences. In the process, he got mugged, jailed, roughed up and heart-broken. Goltz reads from his memoir of the trip, "Assassinating Shakespeare," at 7 tonight in Stokers at the Hotel Donaldson.
