James McBride: Kill 'Em And Leave
Left Bank Books and the National Blues Museum present James McBride, who will sign and discuss his new book, "Kill 'Em and Leave: Searching for James Brown and the American Soul."
A product of the complicated history of the American South, James Brown was a cultural shape-shifter who arguably had the greatest influence of any artist on American popular music. Brown was long a figure of fascination for National Book Award winner James McBride, a noted professional musician as well as a writer. When he received a tip that promised to uncover the man behind the myth, McBride set off to follow a trail that revealed the personal, musical, and societal influences that created this immensely troubled, misunderstood, and complicated soul genius.
This even is free and open to the public, but please RSVP.
