This program features acoustic artist Everything in Pen (Elizabeth Hubbard) and her favorite song topic—books. Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and the off-beat narrative observations of Jonathan Richman, Everything in Pen’s songs cover a vast array of topics and authors---war criminals, sexism, post office closures, Dave Eggers, Richard Yates, Barbara Kingsolver and Robert McNamara--through her unique lens as an obsessive reader. She sings the things you won’t say aloud, of the foolishness, the hopefulness and the almost unbearable humanness of us all. This show will include a brief explanation about each song’s connection to the book and time at the end to answer questions about songwriting. When not surrounded by books and a guitar, Elizabeth is navigating her complicated relationship with little dogs and plotting the demise of lined paper. Hear more at www.everythinginpen.com .
