Where and When: Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre on Nov. 18
Jian Ghomeshi heads to the Winspear Centre in Edmonton on Nov. 18 to speak about his debut memoir "1982."
What is "1982"
A memoir told through 10 intertwined
stories of the songs and musical moments that changed his life.
Ghomeshi embarks on a journey to make music the centre of his life. Acceptance meant being cool, and being cool meant being Bowie. And being Bowie meant pointy black boots, eyeliner, and hair gel.
Add to the mix two very confused Iranian parents, busy themselves with gaining acceptance in Canada against the backdrop of the revolution in Iran, and the stories are even livelier.
