Rock and Roll Book Club

At The Current, we love music — and we love reading books about music. That’s why we created The Current’s Rock and Roll Book Club. Every week, we pick a book about music and share a review online; you can also hear Jay Gabler talk about each week's book with Oake & Riley in the Morning on The Current at 8:30 a.m. every Wednesday. We’d love it if you read along with us — and let us know what you think, using the hashtag #RockandRollBookClub.

British phenom Kate Tempest is the latest poet-performer to cross over into music. Jay Gabler writes about Tempest's novel 'The Bricks That Built the Houses' and her book-length poem 'Let Them Eat Chaos.'
