>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Excelsior Branch Library | 4400 Mission St., San Francisco, CA
Come join as journalist and broadcaster Ben Fong-Torres revisits his travels with Jerry and the Grateful Dead from his years with Rolling Stone on Saturday, August 12, 2017.
The celebration will include a visit with Jerry in Boulder as the Dead observed its 15th anniversary and a press conference, of sorts, with him for a Rolling Stone special issue on the 10th anniversary of the Summer of Love.
Reminisce with Ben about his article for Rolling Stone after Jerry died. Ruminate about the Deadheads, about the San Francisco music scene, and about his book, The Grateful Dead Scrapbook, published in 2009 with the band’s cooperation.
Ben will reflect on 50 years on the rock scene, both as a journalist and broadcaster.
