Meet local author and indie rocker Bill See & read the 1st chapter of 33 Days

If you’re starting to put together your summer reading list, please consider 33 Days: Touring In A Van. Sleeping On Floors. Chasing A Dreaman inspiring new memoir from LA author and former 80’s indie rocker Bill See. And while the title says a lot about the book, it’s the book that really tells a lot about many of us in Los Angeles–the dreamers, that is–those of us who not only dare to dream but who choose to pursue that dream at all costs, against all odds, with passion and no regrets.

You can meet Bill See at Book Soup this Saturday, May 14th at 2pm.

In the meantime, learn more about Bill See, his music, his dream, and read an excerpt from his book below.

About the book
For 33 days in the summer of 1987, critically acclaimed L.A. indie rock band Divine Weeks toured in a beat up old van, sleeping on strangers’ floors, never sure they’d make enough gas money to get them to the next town. Bill See’s deeply personal memoir follows his band’s first tour across the U.S. and Canada. No soundman, no roadies, all they have is their music and each other’s friendship. 33 Days captures the essence of what it is to be 22 and chase a dream, back to a time in life when dreams don’t have boundaries, when everything is possible. The tour is one of those now or never experiences. Take a shot at making the band work or leave it all behind and go your separate ways. Every one of us has that moment where we have to decide to either live our dreams or give up and regret it for the rest of our lives. 33 Days touches that part of us. The road is filled with yuppies, brothels, riots, sleeping on floors, spiked drinks, DJs with no pants, and battles with racism. They set out on the road to discovery to drink in all they could and maybe sell a few records. They grew up instead.he time has come to be brave.
