FANWOOD, NJ -- Author and music historian Michael Rosenbloom will appear at the Fanwood Memorial Library (5 Forest Road) in Fanwood on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, at 7:00 P.M.  He will attempt to solve the mystery of what possessed a staid Catholic High School in Scotch Plains to enter the rock concert business in the fall of 1967, literally the height of rock n’ roll’s most unforgettable era.
 
Through a unique, interactive PowerPoint presentation, Rosenbloom will also discuss the writing of When Stars Were in Reach and where The Who were in the arc of their eventual legendary career, when they decided to bring their raucous and destructive live act to a high school gymnasium in Fanwood’s backyard?
The presentation includes video and audio clips of The Who and is expected to last 45 minutes.  It will include audience participation and will be followed by a question and answer session.  At the end of his presentation, Michael will be available to sell and sign copies of his book.
For more information and to make a reservation for this free event please call the library at (908) 322-6400. This program is made possible with the generous support of the Friends of the Fanwood Memorial Library.
