An Evening with Jian Ghomeshi
October 13, 7:00 pm
Reading & Signing 1982.
Hosted by Terry MacLeod of CBC Radio One 89.3 FM / 990 AM’s Information Radio
and presented in association with CBC Manitoba.
In 1982 the Commodore 64 computer was introduced, Ronald Reagan survived being shot, the Falkland War started and ended, Michael Jackson released Thriller, Canada repatriated its Constitution, and the first compact disc was sold in Germany. And that’s not all. Over the course of 1982, I blossomed from a naïve 14 year-old trying to fit in with the cool kids to something much more: A naïve, eyeliner-wearing 15 year-old trying to fit in with the cool kids. So writes Jian Ghomeshi in his first book, 1982.
A memoir told across ten intertwined stories of the songs and musical moments that changed his life. 1982 is an entertaining cultural history of a crazy era of glam, glitter, and gender-bending fads and fashions.
It is definitely the first rock memoir by a Persian-Canadian new waver.
