Check out Antonino D'Ambrosio on Laura Flanders

"A Heartbeat and a Guitar is more than the story of a Johnny Cash album. It is the moving story, through song, of the epic story of Native Americans. To remember Ira Hayes is to learn the story behind the famous Iwo Jima photograph of Joe Rosenthal. This is a must read book for all who want to understand our true history."
--John Rothman, host of K60 Newstalk 810AM, San Francisco

As much about the present as about the past, HEARTBEAT AND A GUITAR offers up an unknown cultural history of the the United States as told through Cash's little-known and most controversial record. It reveals a country struggling between decline and progression, turmoil and democratic change.

Catch Antonino at 3PM on 12/6 at a "Sundays at Sunny’s" reading at a beautiful old waterfront bar, Sunny’s Bar, 253 Conover Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn.
