Author David Hadju reads from his most recent book, Positively 4th Street: The Lives and Times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Fariea, and Richard Fariea.

A national bestseller, Positively 4th Street is that rare book with a new story to tell about the 1960s. Hajdu recounts the popular emergence of folk music through the story of a colorful foursome: Bob Dylan, his lover Joan Baez, her sister Mimi, and Mimi's husband Richard Fariea.

Janet Maslin of the New York Times calls the best-selling book, just now available in paperback, Ïa hauntingly evocative blend of biography, musicology and pop cultural history.Ó

David Hajdu is also the author of Lush Life: A Biography of Billy Strayhorn and has written for Vanity Fair, The New York Review of Books, and The New York Times Magazine.
