And how about this? Even though she mostly plays small barrooms and coffee shops, the New Yorker called folkie Dar Williams “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters”. Williams has a new book out that captures her cross-country small town USA experiences and she’ll be presenting the book—for free!—to a very packed house at Common Good Books tonight. 7-9 PM.
