The news that Neil Young was writing an autobiography took the publishing world by storm (to a degree) last year.
Likewise, Neil fans were somewhat divided on the effort titled "Waging Heavy Peace". Fan comments ranged from the book being a distraction from the music, to we'll never live to see it a la Archives delays, to this being another brick in the artistic creativity wall.
Now comes word from BookExpo America (BEA) announcing that Neil Young will be appearing at the annual book industry trade show where he will discuss his upcoming memoir, Waging Heavy Peace.
The book will be published in North America by Blue Rider Press, a member of Penguin Group (USA), in fall of 2012. BEA will take place in New York City at the Jacob Javits Center June 4 - 7, 2012 and Mr. Young is scheduled to speak on Wednesday, June 6 at 12 noon in the Special Events Hall. The program, which will be called "A Conversation with Neil Young", will follow an interview format and will be free to all convention attendees.
Mr. Young's interviewer will be named in the near future.
Waging Heavy Peace will be released on November 13, 2012.
