Musician, actor, author, and punk rock legend Henry Rollins will appear at Fayetteville Public Library next month.

Rollins will participate in a moderated discussion at the library’s new performing arts space at 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 12.

From the description of the event:

Our Innovation Speakers series kicks off with someone who has done it all: music, film, podcasting, writing, spoken word and more. In this hour-long moderated conversation with punk rock legend, Henry Rollins, we will explore topics relating to free speech, censorship, public libraries and technology. While most of us know Henry from his work in the arts, his insightful thoughts on education, democracy and free speech will be sure to leave us all with something to think about.

A Q&A with Rollins and book signing will follow the conversation.

Rollins is known for his music as front man for punk bands Black Flag and the Henry Rollins Band. These days, he’s widely considered a modern Renaissance man with his recent work as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host, among other interests.

Doors will open for Rollins’ Fayetteville Public Library appearance at 5:30 p.m., and admission will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration is required. Capacity at the library’s new performance arts center is 650 people.
