Matt Durfee Explores East of Eden in Music & Words on Aug. 27 at Main

The Main Library’s popular Reading Music series returns on Wednesday, Aug. 27, at 7 pm with a focus on John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden” and the music of local songwriter Matt Durfee.

Durfee hosts the evening, which includes a discussion of Steinbeck’s novel and performance of original songs inspired “East of Eden.” This program is a unique opportunity to delve deeper into an American classic novel and learn about the songwriting process from one of Albany’s finest singer/songwriters.

You can get a copy of the book at the Main Library circulation desk, and then join us for a lively discussion and moving performance on Aug. 27, starting at 7 pm, in the Main Library’s large auditorium.

In case you missed our first Reading Music event — which featured musician M.R.┬áPoulopoulos and the works of William Kennedy — you can watch some videos on YouTube. Kennedy made a special appearance and addressed the audience with a reading and discussion of his Albany novels “Ironweed,” “Billy Phelan’s Greatest Game,” and “Legs.”
