SPECIAL EVENT: Mikel Jollett, Frontman of The Airborne Toxic Event, VIP Meet & Greet Pre-Concert Event

SPECIAL EVENT OVERVIEW:  Mikel Jollett, Frontman of the Band The Airborne Toxic Event, will Meet & Greet Fans who have purchased his New Hardcover Memoir Hollywood Park: A Memoir at a Special Pre-Concert Event.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Hollywood Park is a remarkable Memoir of a tumultuous life.  Mikel Jollett was born into one of the country’s most infamous cults, and subjected to a childhood filled with poverty, addiction, and emotional abuse.  Yet, ultimately, his is a story of fierce love and family loyalty told in a raw, poetic voice that signals the emergence of a uniquely gifted writer.

"We were never young.  We were just too afraid of ourselves.  No one told us who we were or what we were or where all our parents went.  They would arrive like ghosts, visiting us for a morning, an afternoon.  They would sit with us or walk around the grounds, to laugh or cry or toss us in the air while we screamed.  Then they’d disappear again, for weeks, for months, for years, leaving us alone with our memories and dreams, our questions and confusion."

So begins Hollywood Park, Mikel Jollett’s remarkable Memoir.

ABOUT MIKEL JOLLETT:  Mikel Jollett was born in an experimental commune in Southern California called Synanon.  Started as a drug rehabilitation program, it later morphed into one of the most notorious cults America has ever seen.  When the community became violent, his mother fled the group with Jollett and his older brother.  Raised in abject poverty and fighting the lure of drugs and delinquency, Jollet escaped with the help of his estranged father.  He went on to attend Stanford University, before becoming an on-air columnist for NPR’s All Things Considered, an Editor-at-Large for Men's Health and Editor of Filter Magazine.  After McSweeney’s published his short story “The Crack,” he was accepted to Yaddo artists’ community, but ultimately decided to pursue music instead.  He named his Band The Airborne Toxic Event after a section of Don DeLillo’s White Noise and quickly built a loyal fan base.
