Program Description

Event Details


Carole was writing pop hits in her teens. “Will You Still Love Me,” “Up On The Roof,” “The Loco-Motion,” “One Fine Day.”  This alone would be the basis of a standout career.  Carole’s fortunes however explode in 1971 with the release of her solo album “Tapestry.”  It was #1 for 4 months and stayed on the album chart for over 6 years! Professor Gary Wenstrup shares this amazing story of a young, earnest songwriter whose mix of gently rocking pop, folk and soul music touched and warmed us all.

Gary Wenstrup will be presenting from Zoom, not in the library.
