Colin Meloy of The Decemberists Discusses His Children's Book in Seattle Tonight!

October 04, 2011 2:30 PM
Tomorrow is Colin Meloy
s, front-man for celebrated Portland indie-rock band The Decemberists, birthday and tonight he's discussing his new children's book "Wildwood" along with the book's illustrator (and Meloy's romantic partner) Carson Ellis. It's a great opportunity to see one of the Northwest's most celebrated songwriters in a casual and intimate environment and to personally wish him an early Happy Birthday.

Any fan of the Decemberists knows that Meloy weaves intricate story lines into his songs and "Wildwood" is no exception. The book's central character Prue McKeel enjoys a perfectly normal life until her brother is abducted by crows and taken to the "Impassable Wilderness." So begins Prue and her friend Curtis' adventure in a secret world of warring creatures, peaceable mystics and powerful figures with dark intentions. Their adventure begins as a rescue mission but soon finds Prue and Curtis in the middle of a struggle for the freedom of the wilderness.

The book is beautifully illustrated by Ellis who is known for her work in "The Composer is Dead," "Dillweed's Revenge" and "The Mysterious Benedict Society."

This is an excellent opportunity for fans of the Decemberists to see Meloy off the stage, entertaining kids with his strange stories. Also an excellent opportunity for parents to turn their kids on to Meloy's work and to wish him, personally, an early Happy Birthday! Tell him Brown Paper Tickets sent you. Tickets are still on sale so pick yours up here, grab the kids and head on down to the beautiful Seattle Central Library and enjoy some truly unique tales courtesy of a celebrated indie-rocker.
