Dreaming the Beatles Launch Event at WORD Bookstores

WORD Brooklyn will be host Rob Sheffield in conversation with Amanda Petrusich for the book launch of DREAMING THE BEATLES on Tuesday, April 25 at 7 pm.

Stop by for a lively discussion about the emotional connection generations of fans have with The Beatles and how four lads from Liverpool became the world’s biggest pop group, then broke up—but then somehow just kept getting bigger. Stay after to get your copy of DREAMING THE BEATLES signed by Rob!

PowerHouse Arena, Tuesday August 6: Book Launch

I will be celebrating the release of Turn Around Bright Eyes on Tuesday, August 6, with an extraordinarily awesome book launch at the great PowerHouse Arena in NYC's Dumbo, 7-9 pm. I will be reading (and singing!). Drinks will be served and there will be singing and it will be a glorious mess, not to mention FREE and OPEN to everybody. I would love to see you there.

The PowerHouse Arena is at 37 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY. It’s right near the High Street station on the A/C line, or the Clark Street station on the 2/3 line, although I will get there via the York Street station on the F line. Full info on the event, along with more info on the place, is below.
