“Jeff [Tweedy] is our great, wry, American consolation poet. I don’t mean this abstractly: to see him play is to find yourself in a crowd of people being actively consoled—being moved, reassured, validated, made to feel like part of a dynamic aural friendship.” – George Saunders.

Founding member and frontman of WilcoJeff Tweedy is also known for his self-titled solo project, which most recently yielded the album Warm, his first album featuring solely original songs. His memoir, Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back), offers insight into his lifelong intimate relationship with music, and the projects created along the way, including Uncle Tupelo, his band prior to Wilco. In 2014, Tweedy performed a world tour following the release of an album under the name Tweedy, a collaboration with his son Spencer.

George Saunders is the author of nine books, including multiple short story collections, and the Man Booker Prize-winning novel Lincoln in the Bardo. He is a long-time contributor to The New Yorker, frequently writing for the “Shouts & Murmurs” column. Saunders currently teaches in the creative writing program at Syracuse University.
