The timely, passionate, and humanely political work of America's greatest folk singer and songwriter is presented through his own words and art—curated by Woody's daughter—in this essential self-portrait, including never-before published lyrics and personal writing, and testimony from contemporary writers and musicians on his powerful relevance today.
Nora Guthrie is the daughter of Woody Guthrie and president of Woody Guthrie Publications. She served as president of the Woody Guthrie Foundation for over 30 years, founded the Woody Guthrie Archive in 1992, and the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, OK in 2013. She is the executive producer of numerous Grammy award winning albums recording hundreds of her father's previously unknown lyrics. She lives in NY State.
Joining Guthrie in conversation will be, Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University, bestselling author, Grammy-award winning producer and presidential historian for CNN, and a contributor to the book.
A note from Nora Guthrie: “This is what I’d like to share with everyone. This is how I’d like my father to be remembered. And this is what I love about him.”
