Comparable to the big bios like Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton. Appearances on Fresh Air, Letterman, CBS This Morning all confirmed.

Neil Young and Patti Smith at B.E.A.

Blue Rider Press and Penguin USA Celebrate Neil Young's New Book via AP Images

BookExpo America has its own rock stars: Barbara Kingsolver, Daniel Handler, Dean Koontz, whose name was on hundreds of posters on the front doors of the Javits Center. This year, it also had two actual rock stars: Neil Young and Patti Smith, who appeared on Wednesday afternoon at B.E.A. for an onstage conversation.

Both have new albums out: Young has just released “Americana,” a collection of folk songs such as “Oh Susanna” and “Clementine” updated as sprawling garage-rock and performed with his longtime partners in noise, Crazy Horse; and Smith has put out “Banga,” a collection that also touches on the American myth by adapting the journals of Amerigo Vespucci and, for that matter, includes a cover of Young’s “After the Gold Rush.” But they were at B.E.A. doing book business: Young’s memoir “Waging Heavy Peace” is due out in October, and Smith’s “Just Kids” won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 2010. And while the two have crossed paths throughout the years—they sang together at Young’s Bridge Benefit concert in 1996, and they’ll join forces this fall for a tour we (and, we hope, they) are code-naming the Crazy Horses Tour…

…more on The New Yorker.

NEW YORK — Neil Young has a special gig in New York City this June at the annual publishing convention, BookExpo America.

The convention’s organizers said the rock star will speak June 6 about his upcoming memoir, “Waging Heavy Peace,” scheduled to come out this fall. Young, 66, is known for such songs as “Heart of Gold,” “Southern Man” and “Rockin’ in the Free World.”

He will speak on stage at the Jacob Javits Center with an interviewer to be named later. One possibility: Stephen Colbert, who has interviewed Young on his Comedy Central show and is already a featured speaker at BookExpo.
