His accolades include a GRAMMY award, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, as well as inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Few artists can come close to achieving the musical and historical prominence of Bob Dylan. To commemorate Dylan's 70th birthday, we invite you to join us for a special screening of Murray Lerner's documentary, The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at The Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965. Described by the New York Times as "a remarkably pure and powerful documentary," the film captures the musical genius of a young Bob Dylan and the controversy that surrounded him. After the screening, acclaimed writer and Rolling Stone contributing editor Michal Gilmore, and Princeton professor and distinguished historian Sean Wilentz will discuss the film, Dylan's career, and the importance of the evening's occasion. Gilmore's numerous outstanding works include some of the most revealing interviews Bob Dylan has ever given. Critics from the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and the Los Angeles Times praise Wilentz and his book, Bob Dylan in America, for uncovering Dylan's art as never before. Gilmore and Wilentz will take audience questions and be available to sign copies of their books.
