Event detail
Add to my calendar

CANCELLED. Will reschedule for MARCH 2015 This hour-long program for adults features acoustic artist Everything in Pen (Elizabeth Hubbard), and her songs about books.  Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and the off-beat narrative observations of Jonathan Richman, Everything in Pen sings an entire set of songs that have been inspired by books.  In each song's intro, she explains which book or books are referenced in the song.   The "Dave Eggers" song’ for instance, is obviously inspired by Dave Eggers, but also has lyrics from Wendell Berry and Richard Powers. Some of the other book songs include Betty Friedan, Richard Yates, Barbara Kingsolver and many others.
