Applegate Library Presents: Rogue Reads– What it Was: Growing Up When the Music Mattered, 18+YRS
January 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
The classic era of rock & roll music was a time of incredible creativity in the arts and in artful ways of living. It was a tumultuous time, too, when struggles over civil rights, the Vietnam War, political assassinations and gender equity sometimes made it seem the world was coming apart. The music helped us get through it. Revisit those times with a writer who covered counterculture and music with press credentials and a backstage pass. James Pagliasotti was the first rock & roll columnist for the Denver Post, where he covered music and counterculture from 1968-1974. He has written for Rolling Stone magazine and numerous other publications, and is the author of three books, including the one this presentation is drawn from.
