In person at the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall or online via Zoom
Kathy Valentine was recently elected to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame for her work with the iconic The Go-Go's, the first all-woman band to top the album charts with songs they composed. She will be joining us to talk about her acclaimed All I Ever Wanted: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir in conversation with celebrated Texas novelist Sarah Bird. Songwriter for such The Go-Go's hits as Vacation and Head Over Heels, Valentine's debut book is a roller coaster of music, fame, family, the creative process, and struggles with addiction and excess; it’s also a story of what it takes to find success and find yourself, to live in the world with self-awareness, creative spirit, and compassion. Co-sponsored by The Center for the Study of the Southwest.
