CANCELLED: Banned in DC Slideshow, Talk + Book Signing w/ Cynthia Connolly

August 22, 2021 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Free

EVENT CANCELLED: Due to high smoke levels and unsafe air quality in Reno and at Holland we are sad to announce the Banned in DC talk and book signing with Cynthia Connolly is cancelled this evening. We are scheming with Cynthia and making plans for her to come back for a visit at a future date when it’s safer for us all to come together. If you’re interested in nabbing a Banned in DC book signed by two of the three authors, Cynthia and Leslie Clague, we will have copies available in the Holland Project Shop later this week! 

Join Cynthia Connolly, publisher and contributing photographer of Banned In DC, for a discussion about documenting a pivotal time in DC’s music history. Released in 1988, Banned in DC, co-authored by Cynthia Connolly, Leslie Clague, and Sharon Cheslow, was one of the first books of its kind, illustrating and chronicling the now-legendary punk scene of Washington DC with hundreds of photos, flyers, and stories about the bands, venues, and people who populated the shows. The DC scene embodied a spirit of DIY that has come to be synonymous with punk, and it has continued to influence many regional punk scenes around the world.

Cynthia will share stories and images of her involvement with a very small group of kids who contributed to a worldwide music movement like no other.  Join in a Q & A following the slideshow and purchase books and other projects made by Cynthia.
