Delta Blues Museum Hosts Book Signing
The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale,
Mississippi, will host a book signing for Hidden
History of Mississippi Blues with complimentary
refreshments and live music on Wednesday, October 5th from 5pm-7pm.
Author Roger Stolle will speak and sign copies of his new book,
published by The History Press ($19.99). Stolle owns Clarksdale's
Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art store, co-produced the film
M for Mississippi and co-organizes
the annual Juke Joint Festival.
"Hidden History of Mississippi
Blues is largely based on the questions that blues
fans and Cat Head customers have asked me over the past decade,"
according to Stolle. "It features chapters on cotton, juke joints
and the 'Crossroads.' I've also included a section of interviews
with the veteran Delta bluesmen who were there and lived to
tell about it."
The book also contains photographs by
Lou Bopp and a preface by Broke & Hungry Records founder Jeff
Konkel. A recent book review can be found at www.mississippilegends.com.
The Delta Blues Museum is located at
1 Blues Alley in historic downtown Clarksdale and can be found
on-line at www.deltabluesmuseum.org.
