Event description

Description

Please join us for the NYC launch event of What I Found In A Thousand Times, the new memoir from beloved singer-songwriter Dar Williams, celebration her impassioned account of the fall and rise of the small American towns she cherishes. A brief performance and a conversation with the author will be followed by a book signing.

Dubbed by the New Yorker as "one of America's very best singer-songwriters," Dar Williams has made her career not in stadiums, but touring America's small towns. Here, Williams muses on why some towns flourish while others fail, examining elements from the significance of history and nature to the uniting power of public spaces and food. What I Found in a Thousand Towns is more than a love letter to America's small towns, it's a deeply personal and hopeful message about the potential of America's lively and resilient communities.

"During a time of political, economic, and social upheaval across the United States, Williams' grounded optimism is a refreshing corrective."
- Kirkus

"What I Found in a Thousand Towns is a thoughtful and passionately explored journey of how American towns can revitalize and come to life through their art, food, history, mom and pop business, and community bridge building. Dar Williams gives us hope and vision for the possibilities of human connection."
- Emily Saliers, Indigo Girls
