Dusty Wright and Ed Bennett present a literary salon on Monday evening May 11th with one of Britain's most noted music critics, BARNEY HOSKYNS. He'll read from his new Tom Waits bio Lowside of the Road: A Life of Tom Waits. The salon discussion will be moderated by CC co-founder and host Dusty Wright.
This extraordinary event affords a select group of invited guests an unprecedented opportunity to meet Mr. Hoskyns and wax poetic about Mr. Waits. The evening begins with a private podcast interview by host Dusty Wright, followed by the Salon, and a private concert by world-famous guitarist GARY LUCAS performing Tom Waits covers.
Mr. Hoskyns has already received advance praise for his book in the UK.
"Hoskyns's superlative overview of one of America's major (though idiosyncratic) popular artists will likely stand as the best book on his life." - Library Journal
Hope you join us.
