Join author David Robbins as he discusses his new book, "The Tu-Tune DeSoto."
"The Tu-Tone DeSoto" is a fast-paced novel centering on the lives of eight Hanson, Iowa, high school teens during the Kennedy administration and Cold War years of the early 1960s. They are living in conflict with the mindsets of their parents through a generation gap destined to become an incendiary turning point in future years.
The story revolves around the history of the early 1960s and the years during the John F. Kennedy Presidency. Topics featured include: The Kennedy Inauguration, and the promise of a vital new generation; the sociological and cultural shift from complacency to conflict; the music of the time and AM radio; The Cuban Missile Crisis and the JFK assassination. Being a work of historical fiction, there is a robust, date-by-date summation of the real events occurring during the the story. Also, there is a suggested playlist of the songs in the story during this transformation into the rock culture.
Admission includes light refreshments, and Dave will have signed copies of his books available for purchase.
