A new book by Daniel Wolff
The written word meets the moving picture
Meet the Author: Daniel Wolff, and at a post-presentation discussion, music critic and historian Dave Marsh.
Whats Bob Dylan got to do with Gene Autry movies? Did James Dean come from the Big Rock Candy Mountain? What can Woody Guthrie teach us about political resistance? Join local author Daniel Wolff as he uses film and music to explore his new book, Grown-Up Anger: The Connected Mysteries of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and the Calumet Massacre of 1913 (pub. date: June 13). Questions (and maybe) answers will follow.
A story begins, leaves marks on the country, then fades out. The will toward justice is the motor of Wolffs history; its road is blocked, diverted, blown up, renamed, until one might find justice far more readily in a song than in life, and it may be that this book could not appear at a less receptive time. It is at precisely this moment that its story will be most fully heard. Greil Marcus
