Westborough: Tatnuck Bookseller hosts author Terry Kitchen

December 8, 2013

Dec. 8, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., Terry Kitchen, author of Next Big Thing, will be at Tatnuck Bookseller, 18 Lyman St., Westborough.

Boston author Terry Kitchen is best known as an award-winning contemporary folk singer/songwriter, releasing 10 CDs since the early 1990s. His new novel, Next Big Thing, ?is set in the 1980s Boston music scene, when Aerosmith, J. Geils and The Cars were all at the peak and some 2,000 lesser-known bands, like Kitchen's own “80s group Loose Ties, were engaged in a nightly battle for existence and glory.

At once disarmingly absurd and heartbreakingly real, Next Big Thing combines the gritty backstage vibe of Roddy Doyle's The Commitments with the emotional thawing heart of Jay McInerney's Bright Lights Big City, and every pages crackles with the kinetic energy of true rock “n roll.

All are welcome to meet the author.
