Le Freak

Warning: This riveting memoir from the musician behind era-defining songs like "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family,"  and "I'm Coming Out" is highly addictive. From his candid portrait of childhood among drug-devoted hipsters to his rise as a performer and producer (collaborators range from Diana to Madonna) Nile Rodgers demonstrates a keen appreciation of life's ironies,  and an unwavering devotion to family.  A true story that never misses a beat.

July 24: On this day in 1725 John Newton, the slave trader-preacher who wrote the hymn "Amazing Grace," was born.

Crime fiction legends Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly discuss the new book that unites their beloved sleuths Patrick Kenzie and Harry Bosch.
