Members of Edgar Rice Burroughs family, along with comic strip writers and artists with whom Burroughs worked, authors of Burroughs-related books, and Burroughs bibliophiles are all coming to Andrews Memorial Town Hall, 54 East Main Street, Clinton to celebrate Burroughs’ genius Aug. 20 to 23 for the 2015 Dum Dum (“dum dum” is a reference to “a great gathering of apes” in the Tarzan books).

Edgar Rice Burroughs is best known for his creation of Tarzan and of the heroic Mars adventurer and warlord, John Carter, although he produced works in other genres as well.

The Dum Dum will feature a movie marathon, panel discussions, presentations and demonstrations, a Tarzan yell competition (judged by members of Burroughs’s family), a video tribute to the late Denny Miller, an auction of Burroughs memorabilia, and vendors. The public is invited, for free.

The public may also dine at the Dum Dum banquet at the Clinton Country Club, for an added fee. At the banquet, the guest of honor and banquet speaker will be Tony Award-winner Bill Berloni, who will talk about training animals for performance. The 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award will be given, posthumously, to Denny Miller.

The Burroughs Bibliophiles is a nonprofit 501c(3) literary society devoted to the study of and promotion of interest in the works, fictional characters, and life of Burroughs, and author who has been acknowledged by Ray Bradbury, George Lucas, and James Cameron, among others, as an influence.

Founded in 1960, 10 years after Burroughs’ death, the Burroughs Bibliophiles sponsor the annual convention. The 2015 Dum Dum is being organized by Peggy Adler, and will be hosted by Peggy Adler and Harry Swaun in their hometown of Clinton.

For more information about the Dum Dum, visit www.erbzine.com/dumdum, www.tarzan.com/meets, or www.pulpcomingattractions.com, as well as at Dum Dum 2015’s FaceBook page. For more information about Burroughs and the Burroughs Bibliophiles , visit www.burroughsbibliophiles.com.

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
