Mavis Staples Book By Greg Kot Out Jan 21

Soul/gospel legend Mavis Staples is the subject of a new book entitled “I'll Take You There – Mavis Staples, The Staples Singers, and The March Up Freedom's Highway” which arrives in stores on January 21st. The authorized biography by acclaimed journalist and author Greg Kot details Staples' fascinating personal history as well as her profound and multi-faceted role in music, culture, and the civil rights movement.

Staples, already a Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee, was recently nominated for a Grammy Award for her latest album One True Vine in the Best Americana Album category. The record is Staples' second collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and the follow-up to 2010's Grammy-winning You Are Not Alone.

Mavis Staples will be performing on Jan 25th at The Pepperdine University Center for the Arts. For more info go here: http://arts.pepperdine.edu/performances/mavis-staples.html
