Join author and journalist James Mitchell to celebrate his newest book, Walrus and the Elephants: John Lennon’s Years of Revolution, at the Ann Arbor District Library on Thursday, January 30th. A reading and discussion on John Lennon’s special relationship with Ann Arbor will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
The opening chapter of the book takes place in Ann Arbor and focuses on the historic benefit concert that Lennon headlined that was held for poet-activist John Sinclair to challenge his ten year prison sentence for possessing two joints.
Based entirely on new interviews and research, The Walrus and the Elephants is the first book about John Lennon to show how his emergence as a solo artist, his embrace of radical politics and feminism, and his love affair with New York City coincided.
