What do Susan Sarandon, Christopher Walken, and Detroit’s very own Jerry Vile all have in common? They all starred in the 1982 adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Who Am I This Time?” on PBS. So how did Vile — better known as frontman for punk band the Boners and editor of the long-defunct humor magazine Orbit — wind up on PBS? It’s one of the many strange tales recounted in The Orbit Magazine Anthology, a new retrospective out now on Wayne State University Press. Following a screening of the episode, Vile and author Rob St. Mary will be on-hand to sign copies of the book and engage in what is sure to be a weird Q&A session.
