Musical Performance & Book Signing. Barnes & Noble is pleased to bring lit-rock to Athens! Join us as New York band One Ring Zero performs an acoustic set featuring the lyrics from some of America's most prominent authors. The songs represent a collaborative effort between the band and an incredible line-up of authors that resulted in a CD and book, collectively titled 'As Smart As We Are: the Author Project' and includes prose by winners of the Booker Prize, the National Book Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. The band will perform songs tonight that were written by the likes of Dave Eggers, Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Limony Snicket and Neil Gaiman. The performance is all on acoustic and percussion instruments. The book includes all the lyrics to the eighteen-song CD, commentary by all of the authors, and short essays by musicians such as Vernon Reid and David Byrne. "Kind of a cabaret They Might be Giants," says Neil Gaiman.
