Author event with Henry Carrigan author of Fifteen Spirituals that Will Change Your Life

Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Henry Carrigan, author of Fifteen Spirituals that Will Change Your Life.

We all remember the time and the place we first heard certain songs that moved our spirits. Fifteen Spirituals That Will Change Your Life is part memoir, part tour of gospel music hits and artists, and part history of forgotten parts of America, telling the stories behind this powerful music.

Guitarist and music critic Henry L. Carrigan, Jr. has been playing gospel music all his life and writes about gospel, soul, and blues for No Depression: The Quarterly Journal of Roots Music and Living Blues. AndraƩ Crouch's "If Heaven Never Was Promised to Me" changed his life when he was playing in a Jesus band in college. He's worked in churches, played spirituals in prison ministry, and taught religion and music in various colleges and workshops. He lives near Chicago.
