As part of Durham Book Festival we are excited to welcome back The People’s Bookshop for another brilliant afternoon of live music.

Join Will Kaufman as he performs his live musical documentary The Long Road To Peekskill. It tells the story of Woody Guthrie’s transformation from a young Oklahoma racist to the ardent anti-racist champion who risked his life protesting American fascism during the notorious Peekskill riots of 1949.

This is both a harrowing and uplifting presentation, showing through the example of Woody Guthrie that racists are not born, but made – and that they can be unmade.

In association with The People’s Bookshop.
