Conversations Collection Book Club: June 2

| 5/13/2008 5:05:59 PM

Rock On!We write a lot about new books, articles, and new ideas on, and we always want to hear from our readers on what they think. In that spirit, we recently started the Utne Reader Conversations Collection book club. It’s a chance for readers and editors to talk about a new and engaging book each month.

The May selection for the book club is Rock On: An Office Power Ballad. It’s a hysterical, behind-the-scenes tour of the corporate music label Atlantic Records, written by McSweeney’s contributor and spoken-word performer Dan Kennedy. It’s funny, but also has deep insights into the music industry today.

Visit the Utne Great Writing Salon on Monday, June 2, to join in the discussion. Senior editor and music reviewer Keith Goetzman will be leading a discussion on the book, the state of corporate music, and the future of music in general.

If you don’t have the book yet, you can order it by visiting the Utne Reader bookstore.

We look forward to hearing from you.
