December 13, 2016 at True Story: The KGB Nonfiction Series in New York.


True Story, the KGB Nonfiction reading series is back! Join us December 13th for a night of readings from writers David Hajdu, author of the recent LOVE FOR SALE (copies of which we’ll have for sale at KGB!), Amanda Petrusich, NYU professor and contributing writer at the New Yorker, and Frank Guan, music columnist at New York magazine. They’ll share individual pieces and discuss the future of pop music, especially as Donald J. Trump goes about assembling what looks like the least culturally-inclined cabinet ever.

David Hajdu is the music critic for The Nation and a professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Before joining The Nation in January 2015, he served for more than ten years as the music critic for The New Republic. He is the author of four books of nonfiction and one collection of essays, the most recent being Love for Sale: Pop Music in America (fall 2016). You can follow David on Twitter @davidhajdu_.

Amanda Petrusich is the author of “Do Not Sell At Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World’s Rarest 78rpm Records” (Scribner; 2014). She is a contributing writer for the New Yorker and Pitchfork and a contributing editor at The Oxford American. Her music and culture writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Spin, BuzzFeed, and elsewhere. She has an M.F.A. in nonfiction writing from Columbia University and presently teaches writing and criticism at NYU’s Gallatin School. You can follow Amanda on Twitter @amandapetrusich.

Frank Guan is the music columnist at New York magazine and has written art, music, literary, and political criticism for various other publications, including the New York Times Book Review, The New Republic, n+1, Artforum, and The Nation. You can follow Frank on Twitter @frankophilia.
