November Book Display

What Is On YOUR Playlist?

This month we are featuring great books that are all about music. In addition, we are also asking YOU  to tell us what is on your “reading playlist” for a chance to win an itunes card!  All you have to do is write down the titles of 6 of your favorite YA books, and don’t forget your name and phone number. This contest will be going on until the end of the month, when we will pick our winner. Come into the YA department today and tell us YOUR playlist!

Check these and other great books about music on display this month:

Beat, Rhymes, & Life: What We Love and Hate About Hip-Hip  / featuring interviews with Mos def, Nelly, Ludacris, Heather Hunter, and others

Hip-hop culture has been in the mainstream for years. Suburban teens take their fashion cues from Diddy and expect to have Three 6 Mafia play their sweet-sixteen parties. Hip-hop’s influence is major. But has the movement taken a wrong turn? This collection features many original interviews with some of rap’s biggest stars talking candidly about how they connect to the culture and their fans.


The House of Tomorrow / by Peter Bognanni

Sebastian Prendergast lives with his eccentric grandmother in a geodesic dome. His homeschooling has taught him much about futurist philosophy, but nothing about girls, junk food, or loud , angry music. Then fate casts Sebastian out of the dome, and finds a very different tudor in a chain-smoking sixteen-year-old Jared, and together they form a punk band and plan to take the local church talent show by storm.



The Indie Band Survival Guide / by Randy Chertow and Jason Feehan

In this indispensable guide for indie musicians, Chertkow and Feehan, lead members of the Chicago band Beatnik Turtle, explain how they have managed successfully to get their music out to the public, to produce four albums, to build a huge following and to write music for television shows and theater without the benefit of a record label. Covering topics such as building a brand, networking, Web site, getting booked, playing live and getting publicized, Chertkow and Feehan pass along advice that, while sometimes self-evident, encourages bands to exploit the Internet and to become Web savvy to make a name for themselves.
