Boswell Book Company can always be counted upon to add a dash of sophistication and charm to Downer Avenue with an impressive selection of literature and engaging discussions with respected authors on a regular basis. Every now and then, the Milwaukee book retailer is good for an especially intriguing in-store event. Recent examples include a conversation with comedian Dave Hill, appearances by actor Jesse Eisenberg and The Hills’ own Lauren Conrad, and a book signing by Bad Religion singer Greg Graffin.
Speaking of punk rock legends, NOFX is going to be at Boswell on Sunday, November 13. The band will swing by to sign copies of NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories, a tell-all autobiography that came out in April.
Bill Jones of A.V. Club says of the book:
“Somehow the cobblestone effort all adds up to the tale of NOFX, more or less. And while, much like the band’s success, it can, at times, simply feel like happenstance that it works at all, there is something to be said for the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s worked for NOFX for more than 30 years, and it works here, too.”
“I didn’t even know this book existed until today. I almost bought it, but went home with Norm Macdonald’s new memoir instead.”
The ticketed event will run from 5-6 p.m., before NOFX’s show at The Rave. The $24 ticket includes a paperback copy of NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories. The band will sign and personalize copies of the book and will pose for photographs at the private event, but will not autograph anything else.
