The ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash proudly welcomes the Rock Bottom Remainders for a special performance at 2012 ALA Annual Conference at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 in the Anaheim California Convention Center Arena.
The Rock Bottom Remainders band includes some of today’s most shining literary lights. Among them, they have published more than 150 titles, sold more than 150 million books and been translated into more than 25 languages. Scheduled to appear at the ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash are Stephen King, Amy Tan, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Matt Groening, Scott Turow, Ridley Pearson, Greg Iles, James McBride, Roy Blount, Jr., Kathi Goldmark and Sam Barry. Roger McGuinn of The Byrds joins the band as special musical guest.
The group first appeared at the 1992 American Booksellers Association convention in Anaheim. The money raised from this year’s Bash will provide scholarships for graduate students in library and information studies, including Spectrum. Tickets are $25 (nonrefundable) and are expected to go fast.
