Author Robert Marovich To Speak At Uptown Library On Saturday

Robert Marovich, the author of A City Called Heaven: Chicago and the Birth of Gospel Music, will speak at the Uptown Library next Saturday.

A City Called Heaven charts the humble origins of a majestic musical genre and its close ties to the city where it found its voice.

A Gospel music historian, founder of The Journal of Gospel Music, and host of the radio program "Gospel Memories" on WLUW, Marovich will share his take on the city's rich gospel music heritage.

Books will be available for purchase, and the author will sign books at the conclusion of the program.

This program is presented as part of the 2017-2018 One Book, One Chicago season, exploring the theme "Music: The Beat of Our City" through Greg Kot's book I'll Take You There.

The program runs 2pm-3pm on Saturday, February 3rd. The Uptown Branch Library is located at 929 W Buena.
