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.

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. Following this conversation there will be a Q&A and book signing.

Do you have a question for Henry Rollins? Send it to centerforinnovation@faylib.org by Wednesday, July 27th, for a chance be part of the audience Q&A!

About Henry Rollins:

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. “Rollins is many things,” says the Washington Post, “diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.” Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guide has more concisely called him a “Renaissance Man” but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic.” When he’s not traveling, Rollins prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full. Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front man for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and as a solitary traveler who favors road-less-traveled locales.

In 2013, after previously anchoring shows for IFC and National Geographic, Henry joined the History Channel’s H2 network as host of the TV show 10 Things You Don’t Know About. In 2014, Henry received the prestigious Ray Bradbury Creativity Award in recognition for his lifelong contribution to the arts, his passion for social activism, as well as his intense passion for the importance of maintaining books and libraries. Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW.
