cured_coverJoin us on Friday, October 28th as KEXP welcomes Laurence “Lol” Tolhurst, founding member of iconic post-punk band The Cure, and author of the new memoir, Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys, out now on Da Capo Press.

Intensely lyrical and evocative, gripping and unforgettable, Cured reveals the origins and creation of this singular band whose legacy endures many decades, told from the point of view of a participant and eyewitness who was there when it happened -- and even before it all began. Tolhurst and Robert Smith began their friendship at the age of five, holding hands at a bus stop headed to the first day of school. In this deeply moving and engaging memoir, Tolhurst reflects on their lifelong friendship, their breakthrough to success, and his own return from the brink of self-destruction as he battled a growing alcoholism that would destroy his place in The Cure and nearly end his life.

Elliott Bay Book Company will be on hand to sell books. KEXP Online Content Producer Janice Headley will introduce a reading and multimedia presentation, followed by a Q&A. Tolhurst will be signing books at the end of the evening. PLEASE NOTE: To keep the signing line moving, we ask that you limit your Cure memorabilia to one piece, not counting the book itself. Thank you!
