Rest in Peace, Sam Shepard

When we learned of the passing of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Sam Shepard, we motored off to City Lights to search for his masterpiece, Fool for Love.

Some one had scrawled “we miss you, Sam” on some paper taped beneath the book shelf.

We first discovered Shepard when he staged the play at the Magic Theatre in 1983, starring a young actor named Ed Harris.

Plans for local memorial services have yet to be announced….
