Appropriately, I chose my former hometown of Bridgeton, New Jersey to hold my first event for my new book Come Together: How the Baby Boomers, the Beatles, and a Youth Counterculture Combined to Create the Music of the Woodstock Generation

I spent four hours at the Bridgeton Library last Saturday selling and signing books. And here is the great news – I arrived in Bridgeton with 65 books and returned to DC with 0 books. Even better, however, was the fact that I got to catch up with so many friends, former bandmates, ex-students, and family members.

At some points, the signing line was long.
Here I talk to someone before signing a book for my high school classmate Karen Dunfee.
One of my oldest friends, Tom Hayes, was the first person to greet me at the library one-half hour before the event was scheduled to start.
Here is Rock Fooks, the lead vocalist in both my high school band The Sixth Chapter and my 1970s touring band Frog Ocean Road. A ton of memories in this photo.
Four of my many former students who stopped by — Neil Oberlin, Josh Williams (who is also an author) Brandi Grey, and Zane Grey.
