Event description

Description

Zoë Howe joins us to discuss and celebrate her book on the mystique of modern-day musical sorceress and wise woman of rock - Stevie Nicks!

Lyrical visionary, style icon and one indispensable fifth of post-Peter Green megaband Fleetwood Mac, Nicks is one of the most recognisable figures in rock. Crowned ‘The Reigning Queen Of Rock And Roll’ by Rolling Stone, and with gold and quadruple platinum solo albums under her beaded belt, the once hedonistic Nicks has enjoyed the ultimate in rock ‘n’ roll success in her life as a recording artist - but this charmed life has come as a result of hard graft, self-belief and a devotion to creativity above all; hers has been a journey of intense highs and lows.

‘Visions, Dreams & Rumours', a celebration of the Stevie phenomenon, in this her 70th year (!), takes us on her journey from a peripatetic mid-West childhood to her explosion onto the music scene as chiffon-swathed rock goddess, right up to the present day.

A treat of an event with insights, readings and a dedicated book signing - we can't wait!
