Some folks on the list may be interested to know about my book, Hard  
Luck Blues: Photographs of Roots Musicians During the Great  
Depression, recently published by the University of Illinois Press  
and the Library of Congress.

The book features more than two hundred images of music and musicians  
from the Farm Security Administration collection as well as a  
foreword by Nicholas Dawidoff, an essay about the FSA and the music  
of the period by me, and an afterword by Henry Sapoznik.

If you're in the vicinity of North Adams, Mass., I hope you can join  
us for the book release party May 6th at Gallery 51. There will be  
other events later in the summer, including signings at the Baltimore  
Public Library and the Library of Congress.

If you're interested in the book, it's available from Amazon,  
independent bookstores, your local library, and the other usual
