Arcana Books Hosts a Special Event Celebrating Dan Hicks’ Autobiography
June 18, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Sunday, June 18th from 4 to 6PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for a special event to celebrate the publication of the late, great Dan Hicks’ autobiography I Scare Myself.
Coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of “The Summer of Love”, Dan’s editor and close collaborator Kristine McKenna will be signing copies of the book and moderating a panel discussion about Dan’s life and music featuring Van Dyke Parks, Maria Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, and Hot Licks guitarist Paul Robinson. There will also be a short musical performance by the participants following the discussion.
Though he passed away in early 2016, Dan’s music, and the stories he tells in this book, remain as fresh and irresistible as ever. Combining those stories with dozens of rare photographs and a detailed discography by esteemed writer and critic Kristine McKenna, I Scare Myself takes readers on a journey behind the music, and into the life and mind of the fantastic artist who created it.
