Dave Hoekstra and Paul Natkin at Frankfort Public Library

  • Frankfort Public Library 21119 South Pfeiffer Road Frankfort, IL, 60423 United States (map)

Legendary journalist Dave Hoekstra and photographer Paul Natkin visit the Frankfort Public Library to share stories and photographs from their new book Disco Demolition: The Night Disco Died.

On July 12, 1979, over 70,000 White Sox fans rushed the field at Comiskey Park to destroy disco records in retaliation of the genre’s recent rise to popularity to the detriment of rock music. Featuring over 30 interviews conducted by legendary journalist Dave Hoekstra, with help from Steve Dahl, Disco Demolition examines the night that changed America's disco culture forever.
