Have you ever wondered how off-key you are while singing in the shower? Or if your Bob Dylan albums really sound better on vinyl? Or why certain songs make you cry?

We’ll listen to samples from the book’s companion CD and discuss perspectives on the book during this lively discussion. Check out your copy of the book at the Information Desk, starting on July 1st.
