Rock 'n' Roll at the Library


Thursday February 7, 2013
7:00 PM
Who said libraries are always quiet? The library is offering a series this spring featuring an author, a film and a set of performers tied to the history and ongoing influence that is rock ‘n’ roll. This first program is A History of Rock ‘n’ Roll as Seen Through Fiction.

Author and journalist William Westhoven will examine the history of the genre through the lens of literary fiction. Westhoven has covered the performing arts as a newspaperman, but has also written his own fiction on the subject including One-Hit Willie: A Classic Rock Novel.

Author William WesthovenWilliam Westhoven is an award-winning journalist, editor and newspaper columnist who has covered the performing arts since 1989. Recently laid off from his newspaper job, his recent freelance work has been featured in Guitar World Online and the Huffington Post. His interview subjects range from show-business legends such as Bob Hope, Dick Clark, BB King and Les Paul to dozens of Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees. His columns and reviews have won both state and national honors, including seven first-place awards from the New Jersey Press Association for Critical Writing. He is the author of  Eric Clapton: Career of a Rock Legend (Zinn Publishing Group/Barclay House Books, 1996). One-Hit Willie: A Classic Rock Novel is his first novel.

 

 

This program is supported through funding from the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
