Saugerties This Sunday
This Sunday, March 27, at 3:30pm, I’ll be joining my good friends and fellow music authors HOLLY GEORGE-WARREN and WILL HERMES at the INQUIRING MIND bookstore, 65 Partition Street in Saugerties, for a special rock’n’roll flavored reading. The eternally busy Holly is currently at work on a biography of the great late Alex Chilton, while NPR/Rolling Stone correspondent Will is about to see publication of his first book, “Love Goes To Buildings on Fire: Music Made in New York City in the 1970s,” a subject I also covered in my most recently published book, “All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music from the Streets Of New York 1927-77.”
As for me, I’m about to start the actual writing part of my next biography, “A Light That Never Goes Out: The Enduring Saga of The Smiths,” to be published by Crown Books late next year. It’s been an extremely exciting project to research and the buzz is already quite considerable. The current plan is for that to be followed by the publication of my memoir of teen years in London, “Boy About Town.” This Sunday, I’ll either read from “All Hopped Up And Ready To Go” or “Boy About Town.” Perhaps both. I talk fast.
Following the reading, which starts at 3:30pm prompt, illustrious local author JANA MARTIN will host a Q&A/discussion in which we’ll talk about anything you would like us to. Including the split infinitive.
The Inquiring Mind Bookstore has a great coffee bar/bakery, a kids section, and plenty room to stretch out and about in (while debating the split infinitive). Both Partition Street and Main Street in Saugerties have come alive in recent years, so make an afternoon of it. Hope to see you there.
