(Impulse!, 1963) and as the singing voice behind several scenes in Clint Eastwood's The Bridges of Madison County. “I started out just writing a book on a baritone singer I loved that had been somewhat overlooked,” says Akkerman. “Now that it’s about to be released, I’m hearing from people all over the world saying, ‘I love Hartman too. It’s so good to know I’m not alone!’”

The event will be held at the Hub City Bookshop, 186 West Main Street, 5:30 p.m. on July 10. Visit johnnyhartmanbook.com for more details.
