I really enjoyed the help I received from staff at the library
James McBride did a lot of focused research on James Brown the musician. He likened James Brown's living and death to the experience of Black people in America. I especially liked his breaking down the musical patterns in James Brown's music and sharing the names of many others who helped him create different unique sound and movement. McBribe was very clear about the focus of the story he writes about James Brown. McBribe is hell bent on Brown receiving his props as a legend and man. He is not engaging spaces where James is not given due for his genius musical talent. He is passionate about the children of North Carolina receiving the 104 million dollars left to them by James Brown. James McBride gives Brown his proper respects.
Delightful writer experience. Informative and engaging, crowd was superb. Library employees did a poor job of getting microphones to some audience members who had great questions.
I am guessing "meh" means that it was between great and not good. The topic was either too limited or we just did not delve into it very deeply. I am sure Bob knows his stuff but he did not have much organization to his talk.
True story of a woman who practices what she preaches. She's the real deal.
Lively discussion of the social life and practical concerns involved in hiking the Appalachian Trail.
It was great!
