Wendy Thornton will present her book, Sounding the Depths on March 17, at 2:30 at Library Headquarters. Her book looks at the way music creates memories, even for those who are on the verge of losing theirs forever. You hear an old song, and it transports you back into the past. Through humorous essays and remembrances, Wendy explores the past fifty years of music and the way it has changed and the many ways it has remained the same.
