Vroman's Celebrates 125 years with special anniversary events

SOLD OUT - Vroman’s Bookstore Presents An Evening with Ani DiFranco

Ani DiFranco book signing Thursday May 16th at 7pm

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

Vroman’s proudly presents celebrated singer-songwriter and social activist Ani DiFranco, in conversation with Valarie Kaur, in support of No Walls and the Recurring Dream. THIS EVENT IS A DISCUSSION ONLY. THERE WILL BE NO MUSICAL PERFORMANCES AT THIS EVENT.

In her new memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream, Ani DiFranco recounts her early life from a place of hard-won wisdom, combining personal expression, the power of music, feminism, political activism, storytelling, philanthropy, entrepreneurship, and much more into an inspiring whole. In these frank, honest, passionate, and often funny pages is the tale of one woman's eventful and radical journey to the age of thirty. Ani's coming of age story is defined by her ethos of fierce independence--from being an emancipated minor sleeping in a Buffalo bus station, to unwaveringly building a career through appearances at small clubs and festivals, to releasing her first album at the age of 18, to consciously rejecting the mainstream recording industry and creating her own label, Righteous Babe Records. In these pages, as in life, she never hesitates to question established rules and expectations, maintaining a level of artistic integrity that has inspired and challenged more than a few. Ani continues to be a major touring and recording artist as well as a celebrated activist and feminist, standing as living proof that you can overcome all personal and societal obstacles to be who you are and to follow your dreams.
