Books & Beats: June 25, 2016
Betsy Burton says, “For anyone who grew up [in Utah]—or who wants to understand what it means to be a child of the fifties, Western, female, and Mormon—The Latter Days by Judith Freeman is, well, revelatory.” It’s a memoir, a coming of age story, about growing up in a peculiar time, in a peculiar place.
Then, after a long solo career, multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd is fronting a band: Xavier Rudd & the United Nations. Austen Diamond says now all Rudd needs to focus on is connecting with his audience. He’ll perform at The Complex on Friday, July 1st.
