Local author Jeremy Grimshaw will read from and sign his new book, Draw a Straight Line and Follow It: The Music and Mysticism of La Monte Young.
Recognized as the patriarch of the minimalist movement, La Monte Young is one of America's most fascinating musical figures who you've never heard of. This book is a culmination of a decade of research, during which Grimshaw gained rare access to the composer and his archives and presents the first book-length study of La Monte Young's life and works.
Grimshaw is an assistant professor in the School of Music at Brigham Young University. His writing on contemporary American music has appeared in The Musical Quarterly and American Music. He also authored a work of creative non-fiction, The Island of Bali Is Littered With Prayers.
