We are thrilled to be helping present, with our friends at Seattle Theatre Group, this evening of talk with celebrated singer-songwriter and activist Ani DiFranco, the occasion being publication of her memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream (Viking).
“DiFranco chronicles her rise to fame with engaging candor. Fending for herself by age 15, she survived each unusual day with ingenuity and perseverance. . . . DiFranco is a natural storyteller, infusing these pages—with their frequent offbeat anecdotes, unusual characters, and significant episodes—with wit, humor, and perspective. She also intersperses the narrative with some of her most notable poetry. DiFranco has defied convention yet remained true to herself. A must for her fans, this riveting, thought-provoking work will also appeal to anyone who enjoys a well-written autobiography.” —Library Journal.
“The Grammy-winning [Ani DiFranco] recounts the eventful story of her life as a musician and feminist political activist. . . . Interspersed throughout with feminist/political musings and anecdotes about such music legends as Pete Seeger, Prince, and Bob Dylan, DiFranco’s tale celebrates both independent music and an unconventional life daringly lived. A refreshingly frank and free-spirited memoir from a feminist icon.” —Kirkus Reviews.
Presented by SEATTLE THEATRE GROUP/STG and ELLIOTT BAY BOOK COMPANY. Tickets ($35 plus fees) include entry and a copy of No Walls and the Recurring Dream.
