Meet Michael Zadoorian, author of the critically praised The Leisure Seeker (now a film starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, released this year), as he presents his newest novel, Beautiful Music. Named one of Top Books of Summer by O, the Oprah Magazine, Beautiful Music is the story of one young man’s transformation through music, set in 1970s Detroit, a city still reeling from the 1967 riots. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
"Zadoorian touches on white flight, iconic radio stations, and the racial history of Detroit, but remains rooted in Danny’s transition out of his shell. With its echoes of works by Nick Hornby and Stephen Chbosky, Zadoorian’s ebullient novel is full of energy, pain, growth, and great music." -Publishers Weekly
