A Broken Hallelujah: Rock & Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen
$12; $10 Members/Students with ID/Seniors
In his graceful examination of the life work of Leonard Cohen, Liel Leibovitz brings us a portrait of the artist—songwriter, poet, and novelist— whose work has endured through the decades. A Flavorwire Most Anticipated Book of 2014, this is not a biography, but a meditation on how Cohen’s unique and timeless voice was formed, and how it continues to affect us year after year.
