Meet Darryl Holter and William Deverell at the Women’s City Book Club of Pasadena for a Woody Guthrie L.A. Book Club of California Event.
Join Darryl Holter and William Deverell for a conversation surrounding the book and the legacy of one of the most iconic and influential songwriters of the 20th century, Woody Guthrie.
Released by Angel City Press, Woody Guthrie L.A. 1937 to 1941 (Darryl Holter, William Deverell) details Guthrie’s time in Los Angeles, providing readers with a window into his early radio success, first recordings, involvement in leftist politics, racial education, and the impact he still exerts in his songs about migrants and workers looking for the main chance in California.
I will be performing and discussing several songs Guthrie wrote for his radio show on KFVD in the late 1930s. Most of these songs were never recorded by Guthrie but were arranged and recorded by me for my Radio Songs album. We will be signing books and I will sign CDs. – DH
