Event Description

Sixteen years ago, NPR Music’s Bob Boilen launched the All Songs Considered podcast. His workspace has been a stage for more than 500 performances in the Tiny Desk concert series. Now, he’s releasing a book about life-changing songs. Fans and listeners can meet Boilen during a special conversation with All Things Considered host Ari Shapiro on Monday, April 11 at NPR’s HQ in Washington, D.C. The two NPR hosts will discuss how the book came together, what it was like talking to a wide-array of artists, and much more.

“Each chapter centers on a particular song beloved by a particular musician,” Boilen wrote in a blog post. “I tried to draw connections between the musician I know and what they reveal about the song that's most important to them.”

Tickets for the evening are $35 and include a copy of Your Song Changed My Life. There will be a cash bar and a reception will follow with Boilen available to sign books and chat with guests. Performance by Toronto pop foursome Weaves to follow.
