Geddy Lee has announced on rush.com that he will resume promoting his 2018 book "Big Beautiful Book of Bass" with appearances in a half-dozen American cities this summer. Those book signings will include a visit to Brookline Booksmith on July 18th at 6:00pm.
Tickets are required and each includes one copy of Geddy Lee's book which he will sign and personalize. Brookline Booksmith explains on their website that he will not sign any other books or memorabilia and will not pose for photos. Because of the limited amount of time to greet an expected capacity crowd, the store will need to keep people moving. Photos taken while standing in line may be possible.
