The Rock Bottom Remainders, a band of bestselling and award-winning authors, are playing a special benefit concert on Thursday, April 22 at the Electric Factory. Featuring a musical line-up including Amy Tan, Scott Turow, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson, Roy Blount, Jr., Greg Iles, James McBride, and Kathi Goldmark—plus some surprise guests!—the Rock Bottom Remainders will take to the stage during their first-ever stop in Philadelphia!
Since the band’s inception in 1992, the Rock Bottom Remainders have generously donated proceeds to literary organizations, and this year, the Free Library will receive 100 percent of the ticket profits in Philadelphia. Merchandise sales and proceeds from an exciting auction, as well as profits from a special V.I.P. reception with members of the band, will benefit the Free Library and its valuable programs, services, and resources.
