Description

Join us in celebrating the release of Ray Robertson's All the Years Combine: The Grateful Dead in Fifty Shows. The author will be featured in conversation with poet David O'Meara and a tribute show from New Minglewood Station will follow. In the book, Robertson listens to and writes ecstatically about fifty of the band’s most important and memorable concerts in order to better understand who the Grateful Dead were, what they became, and what they meant—and what they continue to mean. All are welcome to join us for the conversation with the author and book signing as well as the show to follow!

Ray Robertson is the author of nine novels, five collections of non-fiction, and a book of poetry. His work has been translated into several languages. He contributed the liner notes to two Grateful Dead archival releases: Dave’s Picks #45 and the Here Comes Sunshine 1973 box set. Born and raised in Chatham, Ontario, he lives in Toronto.

Books will be sold by Perfect Books.
