Author Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta will discuss her book On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist, which will also be available for purchase and signing.
"On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist is a fun, upbeat memoir about a girl who loves music and life in general. Maryanne paints a vivid picture of being a teenager in the 1970s and young woman in the 1980s -- and how the punk, new wave and rock scene was from a young fan's viewpoint. Life truly comes together for Maryanne once she creates a career for herself reporting on the music she loves, writing for publications such as 'The Aquarian Arts Weekly,' music.com and 'Punk' magazine. Unlike other music memoirs, there is no downward spiral into drugs and addiction. Nor is it a groupie 'tell all.' On the Guest List is simply a compilation of mostly happy memories straight from the pages of Maryanne's diaries -- and of course, her heart."
