Carole King in town!

Short notice on this one, from Gibson's Bookstore, but worth posting anyhow:

Tues., July 15, 3:00 to 4:30 PM
Carole King

A campaign appearance on behalf of Barack Obama
Singer and songwriter Carole King will be at Gibson's on Tuesday to talk about why she supports the candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama. Sorry for the late notice--that seems to be the nature of presidential campaigns!

Anyone who is my age, give or take 10 or 20 years, will remember Ms. King as the artist who gave us "But Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "It's Too Late," "You've Got a Friend," and many other classics. More recently she has worked with artists as diverse as Eric Clapton, Slash (!), and Mary J. Blige. She's a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, and has won four Grammy Awards. She's been politically active at least since 1972, having campaigned for George McGovern, Gary Hart, and John Kerry.

She'll be talking policy instead of singing, but I for one will be very happy to meet her. Get here early, I have a feeling this will be Standing Room Only.
