Authors Daniel Wolff and Dave Marsh will be in conversation at Book Beat Sunday, November 19th AT 3 PM to discuss Grown-Up Anger: The Connected Mysteries of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and the Calumet Massacre of 1913.This event is free and open to the public. If you have any questions, or to reserve books please call Book Beat at (248) 968-1190.
“In this elegantly written and insightful cultural history, Wolff examines this calamity and how it connects to the artistic evolution of Dylan and Guthrie. The book reads like a historical detective story, one where the sleuth is savvy enough to know some mysteries won’t be solved. A skillful and intrepid researcher, Wolff offers pocket histories of the two singers that echo each other.” —Review, The New York Times
