Comment: I was sent this book. All opinions are my own.
I have a very fun book for those on your list that enjoy pop culture. Behind the scenes from the neighborhoods of Minnesota are stories and a bit of back stage pass to your favorite artists, comedians, writers and more.
Hijinx and Hearsay: Scenester Stories from Minnesota’s Pop Life is available to purchase and you can still get your copy in time for Holiday gifting. Some of the included celebrities are James Brown, Bob Marley, U2, John Lee Hooker, Devo, and more.
It is written by Martin Keller and photographed by Greg Helgeson and sheds a fascinating light on a singular, influential era in popular culture in Minnesota. Such great stories and I am fascinated by the photography. Some photos I have never seen before.
