The B-52s
The B-52s (Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland and Cindy Wilson), perhaps best known for their hit song 'Love Shack,' formed in Athens, GA back in the late '70s and named themselves after Southern slang for a particular beehive hairdo that resembled the nose of an aircraft. Their first single 'Rock Lobster,' recorded in 1978, was an underground success, and on the strength of their energetic, post-punk live shows at such legendary venues as CBGB in New York City and Max's Kansas City, their self-titled debut sold more than 500,000 copies. Now, more than 30 years and 20 million albums sold later, the group is still one of the most beloved party bands in existence. The touring band includes members Sterling Campbell, Paul Gordon and Tracy Wormworth.

Book Signing: Bea Sharif
This debut novel inspired by real life follows Mia and J, two struggling tech co-founders, as they hit the road with J’s disabled and aging dogs for a California road trip. Narrated by Mia, an avid outdoorsy-type, the story follows two very different women as they travel through Yosemite, Napa Valley and Big Sur. During the women’s journey together, they not only experience a variety of entertaining and heart-warming ups and downs, they also have moments of self-discovery (and bonding with the dogs, too). Bea Sharif has crisscrossed 60 countries on 5 continents, along with 16 US national parks. She’s hiked Mt. Kilimanjaro, Fitz Roy, the W in Patagonia, Mont Blanc, and spent long periods in Paris and Hong Kong.
