About Book Signing with Jennifer Otter Bickerdike
Join us for this engaging and fun event that's all about VINYL! Jennifer Otter Bickerdike will be signing copies of her 2017 book Why Vinyl Matters: A Manifesto from Musicians and Fans. This beautiful coffee table-sized book is a special tribute to the most treasured format of vinyl. We all have our reasons for why vinyl matters, but it’s always nice to know why this favorite medium has found its way into the hearts of others. Artists have long heralded the vinyl format as the superior way to experience music. Many bands insisted that their music get a vinyl release, even at the height of CD popularity. For many, vinyl is not just a means of listening to music, but a way of defining self, community and culture. Vinyl, once thought to be a dying market, is now facing a major revival. The perfect gift book for any audiophile – Why Vinyl Matters is a must-read. Pop culture writer and historian Jennifer Otter Bickerdike explores, and celebrates, the vinyl revival. She interviews some of our most iconic artists, including hip-hop stars, Indie legends, DJs, producers, album cover designers, photographers, label founders and record store owners. Each superstar and superfan talks about their own experiences of vinyl and what it means to them, and the importance of its re-emergence – seemingly against all odds – as a physical format in the era of the digital economy.
