Miami Book Fair Here I Come

I will be presenting at the Miami Book Fair, Sunday, November 24, at 12:30 p.m. I’m on a great panel of fellow music scribes:

LYNN GOLDSMITH on Rock & Roll Stories, DAVID N. MEYER on The Bee Gees: The Biography, EVELYN MCDONNELL on Queens of Noise: The Real Story of the Runaways and MARK KURLANSKY on Ready For a Brand New Beat. Location: Room 8202, Building 8.

It will be great to be back in the 305!
