May’s Largehearted Lit, a series celebrating music, books, and their intersection, features Dylan Hicks and Thad Ziolkowski. Hicks, whose novel Boarded Windows captures the music and mood of America’s boomer counterculture, will speak and perform a few songs. Ziolkowski will also read and discuss music’s influence on his novel Wichita, the latest addition to Europa Editions’ new line, Tonga Books.
Facebook RSVP encouraged, but not required.
"Do yourself a favor and read this smart, tender book. The characters will haunt you with their longing and inspire you with their sweet, caustic wit. Dylan Hicks knows his music and his prose is a song in itself."--Sam Lipsyte
"A continually hilarious, hopes-dashed account of an indelible American character: the con man." --Greil Marcus
