Book Talk: Lou Reed, A Life with Anthony DeCurtis

Renowned musician Lou Reed invented alternative rock music, at once a source of transcendent beauty and coruscating noise, speaking to millions of fans and inspiring generations. Music critic Anthony DeCurtis will read from his biography Lou Reed: A Life and reflect on the icon he knew personally and interviewed extensively. The book is an unflinching and balanced look at Reed’s complex life, including plenty of tabloid-ready tales, as well as insight on major moments in his career. DeCurtis tracks Reed’s five-decade career, traveling deep into his defiantly subterranean world. Gritty, intimate, and eloquent, Lou Reed is an illuminating tribute to one of our most incendiary artists.

Books will be for sale at the event thanks to Posman Books.

This event is fully accessible.
