The Library is pleased to welcome iconic musician Graham Nash to “Our House” on Monday, September 16 to talk about his new book, WILD TALES: A Rock & Roll Life. Nash has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, for his work with The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash (also known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young when joined by Neil Young). He is also a solo artist with multiple albums to his credit, and continues to appear with CSN and with David Crosby as a duo. In addition to his work as a performer and songwriter, Nash’s parallel interest in photography (both as a practitioner and curator) led to the emergence of Nash Editions, which has been producing digital prints since its creation in 1990.

Graham Nash will be reading from and speaking about his new memoir, WILD TALES (the title comes from his eponymous second solo album/song of 1973). Nash will be joined by Bob Spitz as he discusses his work. WILD TALES will be available for sale at the event, one day before its official release, and Nash will sign copies of the book after the talk.

While no tickets are necessary to attend this event, we do expect a sizable crowd and recommend arriving in advance of the 7pm start time to ensure seating. Books will be on sale starting at 6pm. Please note that this event will take place in the Madison Building of the Library of Congress, located at 101 Independence Ave., S.E.

    What a wonderful event. Nash had excellent stories to tell and was very generous with his time. The interaction with the audience was great.

    A video was made by LOC of the event. Anyone know where online it can be viewed or downloaded??

    I am nearly 50% through Wild Tales, and I must say, it is one of the best autobiographies I have read in many years! I’m loving it! I also purchased a 4 disc boxed CD set of CSN at the same time, so, I’m listening to that, weaving in and out of reading the book, understanding what Graham is describing about the beginning with Crosby and Stills, and how magically the chemistry and harmonies came together. Also, love his story about Joni Mitchell.
