Award-winning journalist Marissa Moss will read from and talk about Her Country: How the Women of Country Music Busted Up the Old Boys Club. “Moss traces the history of Guyton’s, Musgraves’ and Maren Morris’ career against the larger dynamic that has defined women in country music…[This] is also a story of American politics, Moss argues. It shows how the battle for the soul of country music (and the dollar signs that come with it) mirrors a larger culture war in U.S. politics.” —The 19th
