Shea Serrano / Ticketed Event
November 2, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$27
Don’t call it a comeback: bestselling author Shea Serrano’s latest book, Hip-Hop (And Other Things) (Twelve), combines the smooth hipness of A Tribe Called Quest, the hellfire of DMX, the quirky brilliance of Missy Elliot, and the sheer, unstoppable flow of Jay-Z into one enlightened compendium of hip-hop greatness. It’s a smart, fun, funny, insightful book that spends the entirety of its time celebrating what has become the most dominant form of music these past two and a half decades. Some of the chapters are serious, and some of the chapters are silly, and some of the chapters are a combination of both things. All of them, though, are treated with the care and respect that they deserve.
Please note: This is a ticketed event. Purchasing a copy of Hip-Hop (And Other Things) ($27) entitles you to attend our virtual event with Serrano on Tuesday, November 2, at 8pm (PT). After you’ve purchased the book, the publisher (Twelve Books) will register you for the Crowdcast event and send you an email prior to the event containing a login link and instructions on how to access the event.
