Ani DiFranco
Ani DiFranco
Despite her rebellion against the music industry, Ani DiFranco became one of the most prolific indie artists — selling over 5.5 million albums and winning numerous awards, including a Grammy. In her new memoir, DiFranco shares the unconventional path that led her to become a music industry and activist trailblazer while maintaining an artistic integrity that has inspired and challenged many.

In No Walls and the Recurring Dream, DiFranco’s prose is as incisive and poetic as her songs, combining hard-won wisdom and personal expression to convey the power of music, feminism, political activism, storytelling, philanthropy, entrepreneurship, and much more. Passionate and candid, DiFranco shares her inspiring and radical story — from being an emancipated minor sleeping in a Buffalo bus station, to releasing her first album at the age of 18, to consciously rejecting the mainstream recording industry and creating her own label, Righteous Babe Records.

DiFranco’s memoir reveals how she became the musician whom Pete Seeger described as “the torchbearer for the next generation,” by leaning into an authentic, unpolished aesthetic in the face of the pristine, synthesized music of the ’90s. In addition to her musical success, DiFranco has worked tirelessly for reproductive rights, racial justice, ecological sanity, gender equality, and prison reform.

In a dialogue based on her life and memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream, DiFranco offers the bared soul of an artist who redefined what it means to be a successful musician and how to use a public platform for change. DiFranco will be joined in conversation by Cari Luna, author The Revolution of Every Day.
