Charlie Parr Book Pre-Release Party

September 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Minnesota Marine Art Museum will have a special pre-release party and book signing for Charlie Parr’s new fiction book Last of the Better Days Ahead, which comes out October 11 on Ramshackle Press. Readers are treated to a deep dive into the big picture of a group of Charlie’s songs. Like the old, well-hewn gospel songs, there is both darkness and light. There are tales of childhood, families, cantankerous uncles and aunts, and slightly lost individuals. Charlie will read a couple of stories from the book and also play songs from the record Last of the Better Days Ahead, released in 2021 on Smithsonian Folkways.
