Join Chicago author June Sawyers for the release of her new book on Bruce Springsteen, Long Walk Home: Reflections on Bruce Springsteen at 70. She will be joined by Bucky Halker who will perform some of his favorite Springsteen songs.
June’s latest book will be released on the occasion of Bruce Springsteen’s seventieth birthday, Long Walk Home: Reflections on Bruce Springsteen offers the first exploration of the legacy of a musical and cultural icon. This collection features essays from musicians, authors, academics, and music critics, all of whom answered a seemingly simple question: “Why Springsteen?” Each contributor considered what attracted—and continues to attract—them to Springsteen and the ways they have been moved, shaped, and challenged by his music. Rather than another biographical survey of Springsteen’s legendary career, Long Walk Home studies how Springsteen has influenced American and international culture over the last fifty years and how fans have incorporated his music into their lives.
