  • Greil Marcus will speak at CALS Main Library Tuesday at 6 p.m.

6 p.m. CALS Main Library. Free.

This is a makeup date for the renowned rock critic Greil Marcus, who had to postpone his lecture at the Arkansas Literary Festival earlier this year. It's being presented as part of the Arkansas Sounds Music Festival, which is Sept. 28-29.

Marcus will discuss his book "The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years" with Tom Wood, a DJ with TOM-FM. I'll admit that I've never been the biggest Doors fan in the world, with the exception of "The End." But I'm certainly up for hearing Marcus make the case for the band.
