14th & V | Langston Room | June 19, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Politics And Prose with Busboys and Poets 14th & V welcomes Danny Goldberg to present his new book In Search of the Lost Chord in conversation with Sidney Blumenthal.

In his magical mystery tour of a book, Goldberg, president of Gold Village Entertainment, and former head of Atlantic Records, looks back over 1967, a year that included the release of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and debut albums from the Doors, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin. Then there was the Summer of Love, LSD, Muhammad Ali’s draft-dodging conviction, Stokely Carmichael and Black Power, the murder of Che Guevara, and much more. Goldberg gives us 1967 as he experienced it and draws on interviews with some of its stars, including Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Ram Dass, Tom Hayden, and Gil Scott-Heron, showing the year’s lasting cultural and political significance. Goldberg will be in conversation with Sidney Blumenthal, author of A Self-Made Man and Wrestling with His Angel.
