Richard Saxton, Stuart Wyatt and Kurt Wagner

When: Thu., July 24, 7 p.m. 2014

A Decade of Country Hits: Art on the Rural Frontier isn't your average book. Spearheaded by artist Richard Saxton, it documents art collaborations from rural communities around the world and includes drawings, photos, field notes, essays, interviews and more. So it's appropriate that this isn't your average reading. Book contributor Kurt Wagner—in town to perform with his band Lambchop for Merge Records' 25th anniversary festival—reads his lyrical poetry and gives an intimate musical performance. Other participants engage in a conversation about the book project and present documentary images from the M12 collective. Rather than a hoot 'n' holler backwoods caricature of rural America, this is a chance to soak in the gentle, quiet beauty that lies beyond city limits. —Allison Hussey
