Peter Yarrow - Book Signing, Stories & Songs
The Doylestown Bookshop, Monday, November 10 at 6pm
Book Signing, Stories & Songs with Peter Yarrow Monday, November 10th @ 6:00pm Peter will be signing and speaking about his newest book Peter Paul & Mary Fifty Years in Music and Life Finally . . . here is the first and only book that visually tells us the intimate story of Peter, Paul, and Mary and their music, through their own words and with iconic images that follow their passionate, fifty-year journey to the center of America’s heart. The very best of thousands of photographs, many rare and never before published, taken over five decades by some of the world’s top photographers, follow them from their earliest performances in the 1960s, when Mary was the most desired, beautiful, and charismatic performer and a new role model for women. Follow the trio as they lead America to discover the passionate soul of folk music. Join the struggle for racial equality, social justice, and freedom in this memorable journey, from the historic 1963 March on Washington with Martin Luther King, Jr., to the trio’s appearance before a half million people in 1969 to end the Vietnam War, to their singing at the Hollywood Bowl for Survival Sunday in 1978, helping to launch the anti-nuke movement, the world’s first international environmental movement. Through these images, you can feel and almost hear the trio’s songs calling for a more caring, better world as you see them performing with a courage and conviction that became for so many the embodiment and sound track of their generation’s awakening to conscience, to activism, and to a new dream for all of humankind. Peter, Paul, and Mary’s songs of defiant hope and a certain unmasked innocence are still a powerful part of our American consciousness, and this book reenacts the history of how the trio marked our lives with their indelible stamp of honesty of the sort we yearn to recapture and recreate in our own time—for ourselves, our children, and the generations to come. About the Authors Peter, Paul, and Mary came into being at the dawn of John F. Kennedy’s presidency, as America entered one of its most dramatic periods of social and political change. With music being one of the great forces that brought them together, Americans united in unprecedented ways to create a more just and peaceful society. Folk music, with its ability to reach people’s hearts, became the sound track of this remarkable quest, and Peter, Paul, and Mary became standard-bearers of America’s new hopes and dreams.

About The Book

Finally, here is the first, and only, book that visually tells us the intimate story of Peter, Paul and Mary and their music with stirring images that follow their passionate, fifty year journey to the center of Americas heart. The very best of thousands of photographs, many rare and never before published, taken over five decades by some of the worlds top photographers, follow them from their earliest performances in the 60s when Mary was, arguably, the most desired, beautiful and charismatic performer in the country as well as a new role model for women. Follow the trio as it leads America to discover the passionate soul of folk music. Join the struggle for racial equality, social justice and freedom in this memorable photographic journey, from the historic 1963 March on Washington with Martin Luther King, Jr. to the trios appearance before a half million people in 1969 to end the Vietnam War, to their singing at the Hollywood Bowl for Survival Sunday in 1978, helping to launch the Anti-Nuke movement, the worlds first international environmental movement.
