Salt Lake native Kevin Avery will read from and sign Everything is an Afterthought: The Life and Writings of Paul Nelson, a unique anthology-biography of the iconoclastic rock and roll journalist.
Avery compiles Nelson’s best works (some of it previously unpublished) while also providing a vivid account of his private and public lives. Complete with black and white illustrations and photographs, this is a landmark work of cultural revival, a tribute to one of the unsung critical champions of popular art.
Avery was born in Salt Lake City. A former president of Writers at Work, his writing has appeared in publications such as Salt Lake Magazine and Catalyst, among others. Everything is an Afterthought was a New York Times Book Review Editor's Pick. Avery currently lives in Brooklyn.
