Music writer Aaron Cohen will talk about his book on the history of soul music in Chicago, Move On Up.  “Move On Up is an extraordinary achievement, packed with deep research and vivid writing, with a backbeat so strong it thumps from every page. Cohen has written the definitive account of an important slice of American popular culture. Cue up the Chi-Lites, open this book, and enjoy!”–Jonathan Eig

Aaron Cohen covers the arts for numerous publications and teaches English, journalism, and humanities at the City Colleges of Chicago. He is the author of Aretha Franklin’s Amazing Grace.  Kembrew McLeod is a Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Iowa who focuses on intellectual property law and culture, popular culture, popular music, and media industries.
