The spring 2017 Friday Afternoon Author Series continues on March 24 with celebrated rock journalist Joel Selvin discussing his book Altamont: The Rolling Stones, the Hells Angels, and the Inside Story of Rock's Darkest Day. Within the pages unfolds a definitive history of the Rolling Stones’ infamous Altamont concert in San Francisco. This disastrous, historic event ended up marking the end of the idealistic ‘60s. Selvin’s book is the product of 20 years of research and dozens of interviews with many of the key players present during rock's formative and most turbulent decade.
Emeritus Students College of Marin (ESCOM) and Book Passage have once again partnered to bring a series of interesting authors to the community as part of the Haddie Mini-Lecture Series. Admission to each lecture is free, thanks to generous sponsorship by the Haddie Fund. Books are available for purchase at all events and signings will follow each lecture.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, events will be held in the library’s William Keith Room, located on the second floor of the Learning Resources Center. More information about the authors and their books is available online at http://libguides.marin.edu/events.
