Join Nora Guthrie, daughter of iconic songwriter Woody Guthrie and keeper of his works, as she discusses her new book. This most recent book delves into her father’s archive of creative work, thematically tackling issues of politics, love, family, people, and spirituality.

He is an icon of the Depression era and wrote the world’s most famous protest song, “This Land Is Your Land.”. Guthrie created a personal philosophy that has impacted generations of Americans and inspired musician-activists from Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen to Ani DiFranco and Chuck D. As Bob Dylan noted of Guthrie, “You could listen to his songs and actually learn how to live.
