Rob Sheffield and Julie Klausner talk Karaoke

Rob Sheffield, author of the Publisher's Weekly and Library Journal star-reviewed Love is a Mix Tape, is at it again with his latest title, Turn Around Bright Eyes, which infiltrates and waxes poetic on the phenomenon of karaoke culture. His book chronicles a transition phase of moving to New York in the wake of personal tragedy, where he finds solace and beauty on an unlikely West Village evening in an unlikely karaoke bar. Rob, contributing editor for Rolling Stone, writes about music, TV, and popular culture for the magazine. He's the author of Talking to Girls About Duran Duran. Join us at 7pm in the rare book room for an exclusive chat and Q&A with Rob!

Joining Rob will be Julie Klausner, a New York City-based author, podcaster, and comedy writer-performer, whose first book, I Don't Care About Your Band, was released in February 2010 by Gotham/Penguin Books.
