Joey Grihalva and Klassik for THE MILWAUKEEAN - an in-person Boswell event

About this event

Boswell presents an evening with Joey Grihalva, author of The Milwaukeean: A Tale of Tragedy and Triumph. In conversation with Kellen “Klassik” Abston.

The Milwaukeean is a forthcoming book centering around the performance artist Kellen "Klassik" Abston. It is more than the story of one musician, it is the song of an American city struggling to save its soul. It is a close up encounter with gun violence, trauma, loss, addiction, anxiety, racism, duality, creativity, therapy, and possibility. In this moment of national healing, The Milwaukeean is a call to confront our history, face our demons, and find our peace.

Joey Grihalva is the author of Images of America: Milwaukee Jazz. His work has appeared in Urban Milwaukee, Radio Milwaukee, Wisconsin Gazette, and other local and regional publications.
