NC Reads Book Club: Step It Up & Go


Troutman: June 20th at 2:00 pm

Statesville: June 28th at 2:00 pm

Join us for June's North Carolina book selection, Step It Up and Go by David Menconi

This book is a love letter to the artists, scenes, and sounds defining North Carolina's extraordinary contributions to American popular music. David Menconi spent three decades immersed in the state's music, where traditions run deep but the energy expands in countless directions. Menconi shows how working-class roots and rebellion tie North Carolina's Piedmont blues, jazz, and bluegrass to beach music, rock, hip-hop, and more. From mill towns and mountain coves to college-town clubs and the stage of American Idol, Blind Boy Fuller and Doc Watson to Nina Simone and Superchunk, Step It Up and Go celebrates homegrown music just as essential to the state as barbecue and basketball.

Register and collect your book in person at your branch beginning May 15th.
