Fairfield Woods Library: Six Songs that Changed the World

Can music change the world? Rob Nelson will argue that it can on Monday, March 30, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road. Registration is requested.

Moving through history and taking in the U.S. Civil Rights movement, the rise of punk rock and the advent of hip-hop and grunge, Nelson will lead a night of music and inspiration. Find out what Bob Dylan, the Sex Pistols, Public Enemy, Pete Seeger, Nirvana, and Grandmaster Flash have done to influence our society and the world.

Rob Nelson holds an master of fine arts in writing from Vermont’s Goddard College and has created and taught classes at Yale’s English Language Institute on subjects such as hate groups, American icons, comics as literature, and rock and roll as an agent of political change. He is also a composer and singer and has been active in the Connecticut music scene since 1981.

All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free. To register, or for more information about this and other programs, visit fairfieldpubliclibrary.org or call 203-255-7308.
