We’re excited to join libraries and readers across the country in the Big Library Read, a reading program that connects readers around the world with the same ebook at the same time without any wait lists or holds.
This season, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss Questlove’s Music is History. To join the worldwide book conversation, download the ebook or audiobook at mediaondemand.org or with the Libby app.
Focusing on the years 1971 to the present, Questlove finds the hidden connections in the American tapes- try, whether investigating how the blaxploitation era reshaped Black identity or considering the way disco took an assembly-line approach to Black genius. And these critical inquiries are complemented by his own memories as a music fan, and the way his appetite for pop culture taught him about America.
Find out more about the Big Library Read, download the Libby App, read discussion guides, author interviews, and discuss the book with other readers at biglibraryread.com.
If you’re reading this after the Big Library Read, Music is History is still available to borrow in multiple formats.
