Famous Writers Plan A 'Literary Protest' On The Steps Of The New York Public Library
Huffington Post - 3 months
PEN America, an organization built around a desire to defend open expression in the U.S., is preparing a “literary protest” in the most likely of places: the steps of the New York Public Library. “Writers Resist: Louder Together for Free Expression” is the name of the protest, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 15, at 2 p.m. in New York City. The event is open to members of the public, who are welcome to join “hundreds of writers and artists and thousands of New Yorkers” in a gathering planned on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. “Stand with PEN America to defend free expression, reject hate crimes and uphold truth in the face of lies and misinformation!” a Eventbrite listing, shared with PEN followers on Wednesday, proclaims.  The “protest” will consist of two parts. First, there will be a series of readings outside the NYPL, including performances by American poet laureates Robert Pinsky and Rita Dove, who will each share “inaugural” poems with the crowd.

The Night Bob Dylan Made Sense
Huffington Post - 5 months
Twenty-four years ago, a concert predicted Dylan's future as a Nobel Laureate. Bob Dylan is officially the songwriter with the most bling. He's got plaques, statues, gramophones, and now a Nobel Prize in Literature. True to form, the Minnesota-born singer performed a career-spanning set at the Desert Trip music festival in California Friday night but never mentioned the amazing honor bestowed upon him Thursday morning. What a rock and roll thing to do: ignore the elephant in the room simply by being the bigger elephant. He's more decorated than Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Pete Townshend, and Neil Young. With his new prize, Dylan has won the crown for all time. For America. But if Dylan is a living, breathing national hero, why have we been eulogizing him since he was a young man, almost as if he was dead ? I first asked this question when I attended a 30th anniversary Dylan tribute concert at Madison Square Garden. It was October 16, 1992, and the marquee read, "Columbia Recor ...

The Beginning Of A National Movement To End Gun Violence
The Huffington Post - 6 months
Last month I wrote a column about the Concert Across America To End Gun Violence and I likened it to the great Woodstock festival in 1969 that helped define the popular culture of a generation.  But I’m beginning to think that the Concert Across America that takes place on September 25th will probably eclipse Woodstock both in terms of cultural symbolism and political significance because Woodstock was just a big, live concert event with lots of music and lots of bands (and lots of dope) but the Concert Across America is shaping up to be much more. First of all, let’s cover some specifics.  When I wrote my last column, the New York City concert at the Beacon Theater had Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash and Marc Cohn, but now the program has added the Gospel Choir of Harlem and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, and there may be more artists to come. I also didn’t yet know about the program for the concert at Santa Barbara’s Arlington Theater which is a real doozie because it includes Kenny Loggi ...

For Love and for the Love of Lennon in New York City: 35th Annual Tribute Concert Preview
Huffington Post - over 1 year
"John was a great artist, yes. But he was more than that. He was a revolutionary, an activist who spoke truth to power and stood for something beyond politics and the shallowness of patriotism. He was a rebel, a seeker, a misogynist who grew to be a feminist, a violent man who became a gentle man. More than anything it was his growth as a man that was heroic. That is the journey we all aspire to. Call it the 'real hero's journey.' That will always be relevant. It's about the message that came through him...that message is as timeless as Buddha! John was a vessel for that message of love. 'Love, love, love. All you need is love. It's the word, love. Love is a flower, you have to let grow. Love is the answer and you know that for sure. Love is all and love is every one. Limitless, undying love that shines around me like a million suns."

Roseanne Cash's "The River and the Thread" is Timeless and Transfixing
Mother Jones - about 3 years
Rosanne Cash The River & the Thread Blue Note On her first album since 2009's The List, a fine collection of covers suggested by her father, Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash returns with a quietly searing set of originals. Collaborating, as usual, with her husband, producer, guitarist and co-writer John Leventhal, she eloquently evokes the loneliness of the road, the ache of unfulfilled longing and the neverending quest for comfort and relief from the trials of life in sublime tunes like "The Long Way Home" and "Night School." Cash's graceful, unhurried singing brings a simmering heat to what could be soothing country rock in less thoughtful hands, but is more unsettling than reassuring. Timeless and transfixing, The River & the Thread lingers like a haunting refrain.
