In She Can Really Lay It Down: 50 Rebels, Rockers, and Musical Revolutionaries (Who Happen to be Women), author and illustrator Rachel Frankel tells the fascinating stories of fifty female musicians who left their indelible mark on music and culture. Each incredible musician in this book defied genre and social conventions to shape the music industry as we know it, but have been overlooked simply because they are women. From under-celebrated industry greats like Carol Kaye – the kickass bass player who we’ve all listened to but never heard of – to legends like Nina Simone – the American singer, songwriter, pianist, and civil rights activist – She Can Really Lay It Down showcases outstanding female-identified musicians from the 20th and 21st centuries. 

Tonight, Rachel speaks about the process, inspiration, and her own personal journey behind this musical anthology, and opens it up to an intimate discussion moderated by writer Katie Vander Meer.
