Upcoming Book Talks And Events

Hello All-

My first book talk of the summer will be this Wednesday, June 17th, at the North County Library in Huntersville. I will be talking about There Was A Time, as well as my North Carolina Musicians book. All of our Fort Canoga Press books will be available at the talk.

I'll also be on WNCW next Wednesday, June 24th, at noon. I'll be spinning records with Joe Kendrick, and talking about North (and South) Carolina Garage Rock. Tune in!

Look for further press about the show, and look for the Mod VI this Friday night at 8:45pm, as they'll appear on WBTV's news show on their Bounce channel, talking about our June 27th show.
