Book launch: Tariq Trotter presents The Upcycled Self: A Memoir on the Art of Becoming Who We Are
In conversation with Jon Stewart
Tickets $35 and up


A towering figure in hip-hop, the legendary MC of The Roots Tariq Trotter—better known as Black Thought—is joined byJon Stewart to discuss his new book The Upcycled Self: A Memoir on the Art of Becoming Who We Are. Trotter’s story begins with a tragedy: as a child, he burned down his family’s home. The years that follow are the story of a life snatched from the flames and forged in fire, told through vivid vignettes.

A compellingly poetic account of one artist’s creative and emotional origins, The Upcycled Self also explores the vital questions we all have to confront about our formative years: How can we see the story of our own young lives clearly? How do we use that story to understand who we’ve become? What do we take forward, what do we pass on, and what do we leave behind?

All Premium Tickets include a copy of the book, The Upcycled Self, to be picked up at the event.
