Dilla Time with author Dan Charnas
Wednesday, May 24th
at 6:30 PM
In Dilla Time, Dan Charnas recounts the life of the late hip-hop producer J Dilla, born James Dewitt Yancey, a transformative figure whose beats redefined the genre and procured a following that lauded him as one of the greatest musical minds of the past century.
Dilla’s genius emerged from a life lived in Detroit, and from a family with long roots here. Charnas will be joined in conversation by Albert Hayes, J Dilla's uncle., who gives a unique and rarely-heard perspective on Dilla’s upbringing and growth into the man he became.
Books will be available for sale and signing courtesy of BookBeat. Presented as part of the Library of Michigan’s 2023 Michigan Notable Books Author Tour.

Chronicles the life and career of the California activist and politician, including his crusade for gay rights, his successful city supervisor campaign in 1977, and the legacy he left after his murder.
