By day, they are bestselling authors. By night, they turn into jamming rockstars. Each year, the Rock Bottom Remainders put down their pens and pick up their instruments to play a tour of benefit concerts, and this Thursday, the Free Library of Philadelphia is going to rock out with the band of award-winning writers at the Electric Factory! Come out and join us as authors including Amy Tan, Dave Barry, Mitch Albom, Billy Collins, Roy Blount Jr, and special guest Philly's own Jennifer Weiner take to the stage during their first-ever stop in Philadelphia! All proceeds go to the Free Library, and that includes merchandise profits! We'll also be auctioning off a Gibson guitar signed by the authors, roundtrip airline tickets, AND a chance to get up on stage and sing with the band! For your chance to mix and mingle with the authors, buy tickets to the pre-concert V.I.P. reception!
