In concert including a reading and discussion from her new book, What I Found In A Thousand Towns
Dar Williams is a longtime Ark favorite who finds the personal in the political and the universal—and sets folk commitment to great pop tunes. Tonight she comes to The Ark not only with her songs of politics, religion, sexuality, and family, and the grassroots activism she has practiced, but with her new book, What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician’s Guide to Rebuilding America’s Communities—One Coffee Shop, Dog Run, and Open-Mike Night at a Time. It's a meditation on history, urban theory, and public spaces, and Dar offers real solutions to rebuilding declining communities. Dar will sing seven or eight songs, read a little from the book, talk a bit, and field questions before a final song.
VIP tickets include: hardcover first edition of Dar Williams’ new book, “What I Found In A Thousand Towns,” personally signed by Dar, and a reserved seat in the Gold Circle section.
