Virtual Event with author Mike Ayers in conversation with Shea Serrano

If you could choose the last song you’d hear before you died, what would it be and why? Your favorite song of all time? Perhaps the one you danced to at your wedding? It’s a hard question that Mike Ayers has thought about for years, and his ironically upbeat book One Last Song asks 30 of today’s most inimitable musicians which song they would choose to be the last one they ever hear. Weaving together their explanations with evocative illustrations and poignant interludes—what your song to die to says about you, what songs famous people have died to, and more. The book offers insight into the minds of famous artists and provides an entry point for considering how integral music is to our own personal narratives.
