Join Nextbook for a one-night-only fabulous fusion of literature and music, with best-selling author Myla Goldberg and lit-rock band One Ring Zero. Goldberg's debut novel, Bee Season, was a surprise hit. She then went on to write Time's Magpie: A Walk in Prague and Wickett's Remedy. When not making noise as a writer, Goldberg plays accordion, banjo, and flute for the band The Walking Hellos.
With odd-ball instruments and literary flair, One Ring Zero has entranced crowds across the nation. The Village Voice exclaimed, "I HAVE A CRUSH ON ONE RING ZERO, with their tweed sport coats and ties and tattered sneakers, their smarty-pants patter and killer acid-klezmer ways, and their theremin, claviola, and 'other noises,' oh my! Their [recent] album, AS SMART AS WE ARE, births the equation Atwood + Auster + Eggers + Lethem + Moody and the like + One Ring Zero = A BEAUTIFUL SHEBANG OF LITERARY AND AURAL MISCHIEF."
