1967's Summer of Love Rocker Travis Pike will be signing books at the LA Times Festival of Books, April 22-23
A genuine Hollywood multi-hyphenate, Pike will read select pages from his memoir "Odd Tales and Wonders: 1964-1974 A Decade of Performance," about his days as a Rock singer-songwriter, and also read passages from his new book, "Changeling's Return," featuring the complete screenplay of his rock musical fantasy about a singer-songwriter's out-of-body experience. The new book includes a comprehensive section dedicated to the folklore, mythology, sympathetic magic, and supernatural underpinnings of the surrealistic rock musical.
Music Journalist and Pop Culture Historian Harvey Kubernik wrote the foreword to Pike's "Odd Tales and Wonders," was the other half of the interview introducing "Changeling's Return," and today, a timely new Kubernik - Pike interview posted at Otherworld Cottage, discussing Pike's writing and his mentoring of writers in Hollywood for more than a decade. Kubernik's latest book, "1967 A Complete Rock Music History of the Summer of Love" has just been released by Sterling Publishing, and it must be complete, because Pike has a whole page in it.
Pike is only one of five New Playwrights Foundation writers' in booth #174 exhibiting, signing, and reading from their books. Information about NPF programs will also be available.
