Join author Mikel Jollett on his Hollywood Park book tour: an exclusive, online event series. Mikel will discuss his remarkable life story, perform exclusive material from his new album with The Airborne Toxic Event, also titled Hollywood Park, and have a Q&A with the audience.
Tickets will support indie bookstores and include a signed copy of the book. (Browse event dates and ticket links here.)
Below, we are thrilled to share a personal note from author Mikel Jollett about the evening.
There have been a lot of questions around the Hollywood Park book tour, people wondering how we are going to stay connected during this time of pandemic, gloom and doom. I just want to say: We have heard you. We are not canceling the book tour. We are, instead, moving it online. So what does that mean?
1. Everyone who bought a ticket to the book tour will get a copy of Hollywood Park signed by me. Your local independent bookstore will still get the sale! This is more important now than ever. Thank you for showing them support!
2. All the events, by city, are going to happen at the SAME TIME they were scheduled to happen, except now I will be doing an exclusive event, a reading, a talk, private performance of music from the new record (plus some older songs I think capture the ideas in the book), plus an intimate question and answer session exclusively for the ticket holders in each city. In other words, there will be an online event for Los Angeles, one for San Francisco, etc. … And the participants will be limited to those who bought tickets.
3. It’s not perfect, but in this moment, I think it’s the best way to stay connected.
So, that’s the deal. On the night of the book event, I highly recommend you pour yourself a glass of wine, grab a book, and log in using your personal link to the book event (which will be emailed to you prior to the event). I’ll be there and look forward to chatting with you.
OK, that’s it. See you soon!
