The book will be enriched by P40, a multimedia celebration for the ruby anniversary of Prince’s debut. Produced and promoted by Spooky Electric Ltd. (scheduling TBD). Listen to vintage vinyl. Sip tea and munch princely treats. Walk an exhibition of early publicity and relics — including a VIP experience where you can hold and take selfies with Prince’s guitar, microphone, and more. Learn how a troubled young man achieves his breakthrough. Author Eric S. Townsend will sign copies and read from the book (with a Q&A session afterwards for VIPs). The event will tour 2018 and beyond.

Spooky Electric Ltd. is considering venues across the Washington DC area to get started. Options include a fashion designer’s facility, a university arts center, a historic site, a movie theatre, music clubs, an art gallery, and a town hall. As venues are selected, Spooky will announce them. Portions of the event may be recorded for broadcast.
