Charles CrossIt’s the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death; after so long, why is the Nirvana frontman still so popular? In an in-depth account of Cobain’s enduring presence, bestselling author Charles R. Cross chronicles the man, the legend and the legacy. Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain explores Cobain’s influence on music, fashion and popular culture, including society’s perceptions of drug addiction, suicide, and rock ‘n’ roll. According to Cross, when every new generation knows the lyrics to “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” it’s clear that Cobain is still on the brain. Cross is the author of Heavier than Heaven, the definitive biography of Cobain. In Here We Are Now, Cross interviews those who knew Cobain and those who only wish they had, reflecting back on the last 20 years without the face of grunge. He’ll appear in conversation with KEXP’s John Richards.

Presented by: Town Hall in partnership with University Book Store, as part of the Arts & Culture series. Sponsored by City Arts.
