Bushwhack Bookclub: Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
The Bushwick Book Club Seattle presents original music inspired by Sarah Vowell’s Assassination Vacation. Sarah Vowell is a hilarious historian who entrenches her personality inside her writing. With this book, Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other—a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage. The Bushwick Book Club Seattle is not your run of the mill book club. Much like any, we act upon the urge to read and to have discussions about what we read. But we found that this was not enough for us. When we read books, we also want to write songs about them. And when we write songs, we like to perform them for an audience. Our mission is to deliver literature, music, and songwriting to the Seattle community while building the next generation of musicians and readers.
