BTHVN Rocks Book Club
Thursday, June 11 | 12:00 pm
We’re all familiar with the image of a fierce and scowling Beethoven, struggling doggedly to overcome his
rapidly progressing deafness. That Beethoven continued to play and compose for more than a decade after he
lost his hearing is often seen as an act of superhuman heroism. But the truth is that Beethoven’s response to
his deafness was entirely human. And by demystifying what he did, we can learn a great deal about
Beethoven’s music. Join us as we discuss Robin Wallace’s illuminating biography, Hearing Beethoven: A Story
of Musical Loss and Discovery. Complete details at: bookmarksnc.org/event/bthvn-rocks-ws-book-club
