Jim Tully In Book, Music & Film


Immigrants have been our bete noire for decades, despite all they’ve done for us, so it seems a good time to salute a writer who celebrated the masses of immigrants of his day.
There’s an eponymous book about Jim Tully, written by Paul Bauer and Mark Dawidziak (with a forward by Ken Burns) that inspired a recent documentary about Tully. The audio contains music by my friend, Eric Taylor.
If you’re a writer, or appreciate writers such as John Steinbeck, check out the book. The documentary will likely be on a PBS station near you soon.

Here’s a link to YouTube and one of Eric’s songs about Tully:  http://youtu.be/o4-Z7rPcrqo
