Natalie Hopkinson Events in New Orleans and DC

Hopkinson Cover SmallThis summer if you’re in New Orleans or Washington D.C. catch Natalie Hopkinson talking about her new book Go-Go Live: The Musical Life and Death of a Chocolate City. She’ll be reading from and signing copies of her insider’s view of the social history of black Washington through its go-go music and culture.

As George Pelecanos has said, "Natalie Hopkinson knows the music, the heartbeat, and the people of Washington well, but Go-Go Live: The Musical Life and Death of a Chocolate City is much more than a book about D.C.'s indigenous sound. It is a vital, lively, and ultimately inspiring look at the evolution of an American city.”
