Mark Kuerlansky Reading & Signing at Malaprop's Bookstore

16 Jul 2013

Tuesday, July 16 at 7pm
Mark Kurlansky, acclaimed American journalist and New York Times best-selling author of Cod, Salt, The Eastern Stars, and Non-Violence: The History of a Dangerous Idea, among many others, will read from and sign his new book. In Ready for a Brand New Beat: How “Dancing in the Street” Became the Anthem for a Changing America, Kurlansky trains his voracious curiosity on the song that emerged during the Mississippi Freedom summer and remains indelibly linked to politics and culture in this country. Kurlansky is the recipient of many awards including two James Beard Awards for Food Writing and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Nonviolence.
