Img_7315_2_small The Bushwick Book Club is not your run of the mill book club.  Much like any, we act upon the urge to read and to have discussions about what we read.  But we found that this was not enough for us.  When we read books, we also want to write songs about them.  And when we write songs, we like to perform them for an audience.  This radio segment puts the audience in conversation with a musician about their song writing process for a given book.  It is an adventure into the world of a musician and their techniques for their craft.
