Harvard Book Store and Club Passim are excited to host a book release party for local folk musician and critic SCOTT ALARIK, whose first novel is Revival. The evening will begin with a free reception and book signing from 6pm–7:30pm. The concert (for which $20 tickets can be purchased from Club Passim) will include performances by popular and award-winning folk musicians Ellis Paul, Jake Armerding, Alastair Moock, and Meg Hutchinson. The book signing will continue immediately following the show.

Revival is a love story set in the subterranean world of modern folk music. Talented, charismatic songwriter Nathan Warren lost his chance at stardom years ago, and now sees his life as waste and ruin. Kit Palmer is young, beautiful, and explosively gifted, but her dreams are also doomed unless she can keep from falling apart on stage. They travel the Boston folk scene as lovers and artists, through basement clubs and funky jam sessions, rowdy open mikes and sprawling festivals, seeking stardom for one and redemption for the other.
