Celebrated folk musician Dar Williams will give a concert and talk about her new book, What I Found In A Thousand Towns. Williams built her musical career touring America’s small towns, and has played their venues, composed in their coffee shops, and drunk in their bars. She has witnessed the struggle of these communities, but also seen them thrive in the face of post-industrial identity crises. Drawing from her own travels and the work of urban theorists, Williams muses on why some towns flourish while others fail, and offers real solutions to rebuild declining communities.
Books will be for sale at the event.
What I Found In A Thousand Towns “is not another in an endless parade of music memoirs . . . [it] reads as if Pete Seeger and Jane Jacobs teamed up, more a report from the Green party than the green room."―New York Times
