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.
