Lol Tolhurst Book Reading & Signing

Join us at Howlin' Books, located inside Grimey's Too, on the evening of Thursday December 8, for a multimedia book signing event with Lol Tolhurst, one of the founding members of legendary British "pop-goth" band The Cure.

For the first time in the bands nearly forty-year history, here is the story of The Cure - virtual inventors of alternative music - from someone who was there at the very beginning: Lol Tolhurst, the band's co-founder, co-songwriter and lifelong friend of lead singer Robert Smith.

Smith prefers to let the band's songs speak for themselves, making Cured the only insider memoir of a group that helped generations navigate their angst-filled teen years.  From Smith and Tolhurst's early childhood to the band's heyday, Cured illuminates and surprises in equal measure.  Tolhurst mines the bands peak years (1976-1989) to produce never before told tales of The Cure, shining a light on the mercurial and fascinating Robert Smith. Revealing the highs and lows in a life long relationship, Cured is a touching odyssey of triumph, despair and ultimately understanding and redemption
