Author will be at Theo Ganz Studio in Beacon

Bug MusicTheo Ganz Studio will host a book signing and reading by David Rothenberg to celebrate his latest book, Bug Music: How Insects Gave Us Rhythm and Noise. The reading will take place at the gallery at 149 Main St. in Beacon on Sunday, April 14, at 4 p.m. A reception will follow the reading.

Rothenberg investigates the beats of cicadas, katydids, leafhoppers and water bugs in his third foray into music made in the animal world. Bug Music completes Rothenberg’s trilogy, including Why Birds Sing and Thousand Mile Song, and continues to explore the relationship between the natural world and music. Why Birds Sing has been published in six languages and was the inspiration for the eponymous BBC documentary.
