Subject: Celebrating Woody Guthrie - next Saturday in Pasadena
As part of the year-long, nationwide celebration of folksinger Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday, the Pasadena Public Library is sponsoring “Celebrating the Life, Music & Legacy of Woody Guthrie” next Saturday, September 15th, at 2 pm at the Allendale Branch Library (1130 South Marengo Avenue).
I will be speaking about Woody’s years in Southern California, where he moved from Oklahoma during the Depression. Those years had a profound impact on his music and his politics. He wrote some of his best songs during that period, when he lived in downtown LA, Glendale, and Echo Park. Woody is one of the people I profile in my new book, The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame. The book will be on sale at the event and I’ll be signing books for those who are interested. In addition, folk singer Ross Altman will play a selection of Guthrie’s songs from that period.
Two weeks later, on Saturday, September 29, at 2 pm, the Pasadena Public Library will be screening the wonderful PBS American Masters documentary film, “Woody Guthrie: Ain’t Got No Home.” It includes great footage from Woody’s life as well as interviews with Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, and others. Ed Cray, professor at USC and author of Ramblin’ Man: The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie, will introduce the film.
For more information, call 626.744.7260 or visit pasadenapubliclibrary.net
You can learn more about the year-long Woody Centennial Celebration, cosponsored by the Woody Guthrie Archives and the Grammy Museum, at this website.
Please forward this announcement to anyone else you think might be interested in these events.
I hope to see some of you on Saturday!
