Center Reads Another Little Piece of My Heart: My Life of Rock and Revolution in the ’60s by Richard Goldstein
April 2, 8:00 pm-10:00 pmFree
Read and discuss the vivid memoir by Richard Goldstein’s in which we see some of rock’s greatest icons like never before. Goldstein also carries us far beyond the music, charting the arc of an entire turbulent decade. As the Summer of Love hits the wall of the Vietnam War, Goldstein gradually relinquishes his critical distance, swept away in the violent politics of the day. Befriending radicals such as Abbie Hoffman and the Black Panthers, he witnesses the student uprising at Columbia University and the riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. His battle becomes, as for so many others, to fend off disillusionment and protect the idealism that had flowered so dramatically only years before.
Another Little Piece of My Heart is an unforgettable portrait of an ambitious and open hearted young man in the right place at the right time, able to feel the full register of the sixties. Filled with the memories of unparalleled experience, this is a deeply moving, insightful document of rock and revolution in America.
