1982: A MEMOIR

Friday, October 19th, 2012 at 7:00pm
LINCOLN ALEXANDER CENTRE

160 King Street East, Hamilton

Tickets : $ 20

JIAN GHOMESHI is an award-winning broadcaster, writer, musician and producer. He is the host and co-creator of the national daily talk programme Q on CBC Radio One and CBC TV, and hosts Canada Reads, CBC’s annual battle of the books. Before his broadcasting days, Ghomeshi was a member of the popular ’90s folk-rock group, Moxy Früvous.

1982 is a memoir told across intertwined stories of the songs and musical moments that changed his life. Obsessed with David Bowie (“I wanted to be Bowie,” he recalls), the adolescent Ghomeshi embarks on a Nick Hornbyesque 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 that the essential all-black wardrobe and you have two very confused Iranian parents, busy themselves with gaining acceptance in Canada against the backdrop of the revolution in Iran.

The Carnegie Gallery: The Dundas region is rich in talent and the Dundas Art & Craft Association is proud to play a role in the promotion of the arts and craftspeople.
