Dar Williams Reading, Singing, and Signing

October 10, 2017, 7:00pm - October 10, 2017, 8:00pm

Dar, a Wesleyan University alumni and renowned folk musician, and composer based in the Hudson Valley, presents an impassioned account of the fall and rise of the small American towns she cherishes. Dubbed by the New Yorker as "one of America's very best singer-songwriters," Dar Williams has made her career, not in stadiums, but touring America's small towns. She has played their venues, composed in their coffee shops, and drunk in their bars. She has seen these communities struggle but also seen them thrive in the face of postindustrial identity crises. Here, Williams muses on why some towns flourish while others fail, examining elements of the significance of history and nature to the uniting power of public spaces and food. Drawing on her own travels and the work of urban theorists, Williams offers real solutions to rebuild declining communities. What I Found in a Thousand Towns is more than a love letter to America's small towns, it's a deeply personal and hopeful message about the potential of America's lively and resilient communities. Come and meet Dar and listen to her speak about her adventures and observations on life in small-town America.
