Meet Local Author Michelle Wyatt

“If there was one universal principle that you could embrace to make your entire life easier…would you?” –Michelle Wyatt, “Buckle Up, Buttercup!”

Change is perhaps the only constant, and yet, we fear it, avoid it, resist it, and even grieve in the wake of it. But what if we could see change as an opportunity? An asset? A silver lining? What if we could plan for and manage change in a way that helped us live our best lives?

Meet Michelle Wyatt — author of “Buckle Up, Buttercup!” — and join
her on an emotional and intellectual road trip through the nuances
of personal and professional change, exploring how changes — of
any size, at work or at home — can impact so very much, and why
they require our honest and focused attention.

Books will be sold at the event for $15 each.

Book Signing with Steve Gorman

Steve Gorman of the The Black Crowes will be at Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library to sign and sell copies of his memoir “Hard to Handle: The Life and Death of The Black Crowes.” This memoir is the first account of the band’s story.

Below is the publisher’s press release about Gorman’s fascinating book:
“With hits like “Hard to Handle,” “She Talks to Angels,” and “Remedy,” The Black Crowes topped the charts and reigned supreme over the radio waves for more than two decades. They were on the cover of Rolling Stone, MTV played their videos 24/7, and Generation X re-discovered the power of classic rock and blues by digging into multi-platinum classics like Shake Your Money Maker and The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.

However, stardom proved fleeting for The Black Crowes, and their success slowly dwindled as the band members got caught up in the rock star world and lost sight of their musical ambition. Despite the drinking, drugs, and incessant fighting between Chris and Rich Robinson (two of the angriest brothers in rock and roll), the band continued to tour. On any given night, they could be the best band you ever saw—or the most combative. Then, one last rift in 2013 proved too insurmountable to overcome. After that, the Black Crowes would fly no more.

Steve Gorman is a founding member of The Black Crowes as well as his current band, Trigger Hippy. He has created and hosted two nationally syndicated radio shows. Hard to Handle is his first book. He lives in Nashville with his wife and two kids. Steven Hyden is the author of Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me and Twilight of the Gods. His work has also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Washington Post, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Grantland, The. A.V. Club, Uproxx, and The Ringer.”
