Author Event: John Lingan – Homeplace – Discussion of THE KING

February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

EXPLORE THE LEGACY OF ELVIS VIA A MUSICAL ROAD TRIP.
Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, two-time Sundance Grand Jury winner Eugene Jarecki’s new film takes the King’s 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across America. From Memphis to New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, the journey traces the rise and fall of Elvis as a metaphor for the country he left behind. In this groundbreaking film, Jarecki paints a visionary portrait of the state of the American Dream and a penetrating look at how the hell we got here. Join us with author John Lingan as we discuss his recent release, HOMEPLACE: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk. Brief reading and Q&A to follow. Books available in the lobby during the event. Screening to follow.
