Neil Young to Speak at BookExpo America

Rock legend Neil Young will headline an event at this year’s BookExpo America. “A Conversation with Neil Young” will take place on June 6th.

Young (pictured, in 1970) will be talking about his forthcoming memoir Waging Heavy Peace. When Young’s book deal was first announced, Young said that “writing books fit me like a glove.” The event is free, but seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis.

BEA show manager Steve Rosato had this statement in the release: “This appearance will be a highlight of our show and I am sure it will live on as one of our great all time moments in BEA history. I have no doubt that on Wednesday, June 6 at 12 noon just about everyone in the Javits Center will be packed into the Special Events Hall!”
