Literary history is chock full of authors who, inspired by musical rhythms, have strove to integrate them into their writing: Ernest Hemingway with Bach, Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray with Ellington are just two of many examples. This evening, NJMH is happy indeed to welcome into its family of collaborators Paul Harding, musician and author, best known for his debut novel Tinkers (2009), which won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2010 PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize among other honors. Harding was the drummer in the band Cold Water Flat throughout its existence from 1990 to 1996, and it's this aspect of Harding's talents that will be our focus on this evening. Profoundly inspired Elvin Jones drumming, on record and in person, Paul Harding will share with us his own life-long passion for rhythm, and how he hears and writes it.
