Columbus Alive

Those who spent their days and nights in the record stores and rock bars along High Street in the 1980s - and those of us who often hear stories about those good old days - will feel many twinges of recognition while reading That Summertime Sound. Matthew Specktor's coming-of-age novel is filled with barely shrouded Columbus landmarks and residents. (Crazy Lady's = Crazy Mama's; Gary Hauser = Ron House; etc., etc., etc.) Meet the man who mythologized Columbus on Wednesday at the Wex, where Specktor will read from his book, sign autographs and answer questions.
