Largehearted Lit with Will Boast and Eleanor Henderson

04/13/2012 - 7:00pm

April’s Largehearted Lit, a series that celebrates music, books, and their intersection, features Will Boast and Eleanor Henderson. Boast’s short story collection Power Ballads follows working musicians from arenas to polka-bars, while Henderson’s novel Ten Thousand Saints dives into the heart of the straight-edge scene in 1990s New York. They’ll each be speaking about music’s influence on their writing, and will be joined by a guest musician. Facebook RSVP appreciated.

Real musicians don’t sign autographs, date models, or fly in private jets. They spend their lives in practice rooms and basement clubs or toiling in the obscurity of coffee-shop gigs, casino jobs, and the European festival circuit.
