Local author, professor, and music-maker Adam Caress will talk about The Day Alternative Music Died: Dylan, Zeppelin, Punk, Glam, Alt, Majors, Indies, and the Struggle Between Art and Money for the Soul of Rock. Sven Birkerts (The Gutenberg Elegies) says: “The history is fascinating—much fresh lore here—and the cultural and economic analysis is chillingly persuasive. A carefully wrought and necessary book.” Caress is from a musical family—he and his three siblings are all in bands—and he is Editor-in-Chief of the online music magazine Mule Variations. He is also Adjunct Professor of Music Business and Assistant Director of Communications at Montreat College.
