Joni Mitrchell, critical listening with Ruth Charnock

At Five Leaves Bookshop


In this sound and image-illustrated talk, Ruth Charnock looks at Joni Mitchell’s work as a musician, composer, cultural commentator and antagonist, thinking particularly about Mitchell’s album Blue and its depiction of desire, free love, and the late ’60s, whilst also exploring Mitchell’s wider cultural contributions and significance. 

Ruth Chanock is a Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Lincoln, UK. She is the author of Anaïs Nin: bad sex, shame and contemporary culture (forthcoming). Her newly published edited academic book, Joni Mitchell: new critical reading  is normally £96… but we will have copies at £25 on the night!

Tickets: £3.00 including refreshments. Please let us know you are coming on [email protected]

Ruth will also be speaking at States of Independence in Leicester on March 23. See our later separate listing for that event
