Book Giveaway & Signing with Jim Nowoc “No strings Attached: My Life Growing Up With Rock ‘N Roll”

Author Jim Nowoc will join us to celebrate his book “No Strings Attached:  My Life Growing Up With The Birth of Rock ‘N Roll”.  Jim will be signing a limited number of complementary books – courtesy of Ron Onesti, President and CEO of Onesti Entertainment and the Des Plaines Theatre – who was honored to write the book’s foreword.

Book will be distributed while supplies last, beginning at 3PM.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Jimmy Nowoc’s ingenious autobiography, No Strings Attached: My Life Growing Up With the Birth of Rock ‘N Roll, melds a lifelong love of music with his journey from Chicago to Clear Lake, Iowa, to Vietnam, Mexico, and back to Chicagoland, with points in between. Nowoc begins with his formative memories, then toggles his story back and forth through the years leading to the present day. Deeply rooted within the narrative is a reverence for Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and The Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson), the three rock ‘n roller artists who perished in a plane crash in an Iowa cornfield in February of 1959. Nowoc carries the reader on a journey that is nostalgic, emotional, and joyous. In 2010 Nowoc bought a guitar at a charity auction. Never tuned or played, it became a repository of hundreds of autographs from rock music greats. As names were added, Nowoc removed the strings to allow more space for entries, a state of affairs that gives us the book’s book title.
