Author Visit: Reading and Live Music with Eddie Baranek

Saturday, May 31 2014
02:00 PM - 03:30 PM
Friends Auditorium
Local musician and author Eddie Baranek will perform and read from his book, Taken Alive: The Sights’ Rock and Roll Tour Diary. This is a narration of his time touring the United States and Europe with his band and Tenacious D in 2012. It’s filled with colorful anecdotes and thoughts on the power of music in our culture. Eddie will play guitar, sing, and read from the diary, and bring stories from the road. Join us for a fun and engaging afternoon, as we hear about what it means to be a Detroit rock and roller.
Taken Alive was chosen by the Library of Michigan as one of the Michigan Notable Books for 2014, and this program was made possible with the Library of Michigan’s generous assistance. Books will be available for purchase following the program.
