Positively Bob Dylan

Fine Bob Dylan stuff. Since 1997.

When Bob Met Woody

The first-ever picture book on Bob Dylan will be published in May, just in time for Dylan's 70th birthday. NY Times-bestselling author Gary Golio’s second book for kids (ages 8-12), "When Bob Met Woody: The Story of the Young Bob Dylan" follows him from his beginnings in the cold North Country of Minnesota in the 1950s to the streets of New York City, where he arrives at 19, hoping to find and meet his hero Woody Guthrie. The inspiring story about a young man’s passion for music and the importance of personal heroes has been illustrated by award-winning artist Marc Burckhardt. Golio’s poetic text and Burckhardt’s iconographic paintings capture the power and tenderness of their meeting in words and images that conjure an era when the times they were a-changin’.
