Woody Guthrie L.A. 1937 to 1941

A Conversation With Authors William Deverell and Darryl Holter

In conjunction with the recent release of their new co-authored book, Woody Guthrie L.A. 1937 to 1941, historians William Deverell and Darryl Holter will join GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli for a conversation surrounding the book and the legacy of one of the most iconic and influential songwriters of the 20th century, Woody Guthrie. Released by Angel City Press on Jan. 15, 2016, Woody Guthrie L.A. 1937 to 1941 details Guthrie's time in Los Angeles, providing readers with a window into his early radio success, first recordings, involvement in leftist politics, racial education, and the impact he still exerts in his songs about migrants and workers looking for the main chance in California. The conversation will be followed by a special performance from Holter, whose 2015 album Radio Songs: Woody Guthrie in Los Angeles, 1937–1941 was released to critical acclaim.
