An Evening with Music Legend Art Garfunkel

This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

The sounds of Art Garfunkel’s iconic harmonies are part of some of the greatest songs ever recorded. From “Mrs. Robinson” to “The Sound of Silence,” the music of Garfunkel and his then-singing partner, Paul Simon, stands tall at the summit of American pop culture.

Now, join the golden-haired, curly-headed half of Simon & Garfunkel for an intimate conversation at the historic Castro Theatre as he celebrates the release of his new memoir, What Is It All but Luminous. Hear his stories of meeting Simon in school, becoming Simon & Garfunkel, and taking the world by storm. Garfunkel will also discuss the decades since those successful years. He’ll share his inspirational and heartbreaking journey in this rare program with a true American icon.

Note: Pre-signed bookplates will only be available to people who purchase a copy of What Is It All but Luminous from The Commonwealth Club.
