Wayward Saints: Songs & Stories From Suzzy Roche, February 4th at 4

February 3, 2012

The Essex Library presents author/musician Suzzy Roche, who will appear at Valley Regional High School Auditorium, Saturday, Feb. 4 at 4 p.m. to talk about her new novel, Wayward Saints  and sing some songs.

Suzzy was a founding member of the musical group The Roches, who performed for twenty years as a trio throughout Europe and the United States in a wide variety of venues, from their own sold-out show at Carnegie Hall to the concert halls of Europe and the street corners of New York City.  They appeared  on The Tonight Show, The David Letterman Show,  and have sung with Philip Glass, Paul Simon, Laurie Anderson, The Indigo Girls, Loudon Wainwright and Linda Ronstadt, just to name a few.

After the Roches put their group on an indefinite hiatus in 1997, Suzzy returned later that year with her solo debut Holy Smokes and its 2000 follow-up, Songs From An Unmarried Housewife and Mother, Greenwich Village. She also appeared in the film Crossing Delancey with Amy Irving and performs with theater ensembles like the Wooster Group.

Books will be available for signing and sale, and the show is free and open to the public. Please call the Essex Library for more information at 860-767-1560.

Valley Regional High School is at 256 Kelsey Hill Road, Deep River, CT 06417.
