On Thursday, May 7, "How to Talk to Rockstars" author Alli Marshall will talk about her new novel at 6:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Macon County Public Library. Singer songwriter Angela Faye Martin will start the evening with a few songs and an introduction of the author.
Music is a universal language, but sometimes it needs an interpreter. That's the idea behind “How to Talk to Rockstars,” a novel about love, loneliness and rock 'n' roll. The debut of Alli Marshall, an Asheville-based author, journalist and editor, it’s available in May 2015 from Logosophia Books.
Marshall has written for the Mountain Xpress, an altweekly in Asheville, N.C., since 2001. She's been the arts section editor since 2013. “How to Talk to Rockstars” is based in part on her 14-or-so years spent interviewing artists of all genres, but especially touring musicians.
