Via an April 12 e-newsletter from Meet Minneapolis:
Dig if You Will the Picture, tribute to Prince, cover artist book signing April 20
A year has come and gone since the passing of Prince, Minneapolis’ most beloved musical legend. In his honor, New York Times bestselling author Ben Greenman has penned a beautiful biography on the life of the late pop sensation, titled Dig if You Will the Picture. The cover art for the book, which surely had to be as vibrant as Prince himself, was created by local Minneapolis artist, Kristi Abbott. Both the book and cover are a unique and kaleidoscopic look into the life, legacy, and electricity of the pop legend and his wide-ranging impact on our culture.
From 3-6 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, Prince fans are invited to a special book signing with Abbott. Copies of the book will be available along with prints of the cover, pint glasses, and an assortment of other products for the public to both purchase and have signed by Abbott. Snacks and light refreshments will be available. Hosted by Love From Minneapolis, the event will take place at Minneapolis Visitor Information on Nicollet, 505 Nicollet Mall Suite 100.
Steve Noonan, a former sound engineer for Prince, will play original music during the event.
