In The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World’s Most Creative Places, from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley, the selected title for this year's One Book, One Village community read, author Eric Weiner examines the idea of particularly "magical" times and places that result in a creative explosion. In a program specially developed for the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, the hosts of WBEZ’s Sound Opinions, Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, will discuss 1977, the year punk music emerged from London and New York. Punk rock, which has proven influential on everything that's followed, erupted in those two cities out of an uneasy stew of economic inequality, racial tensions, budding anger, and a sense that we all had "no future" -- a time, in other words, not unlike today.

This program will be presented at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in front of a live audience as part of partnership between the library and Metropolis. Register beginning Friday, September 16 at ahml.info or by calling 847-392-0100.

Sound Opinions broadcasts to more than 120 radio stations across the country and has produced more than 550 episodes. It can be heard in the Chicago market on WBEZ on Fridays and Saturdays.
