Last month, Springsteen’s new collection, High Hopes, leaked on Amazon, so you may have already heard some of the dozen songs on the 18th studio album by Jersey’s crooning native son. But today it drops for real, so mark the occasion with a trip to his home state. Word Jersey City, an offshoot of the Greenpoint bookstore that opened this past summer, will host Springsteen Night with authors Marc Dolan (Bruce Springsteen and the Promise of Rock and Roll) and Caryn Rose (Raise Your Hand: Adventures of an American Springsteen Fan in Europe). Join them for a conversation about the icon, who has said that he’s “spent most of my life as a musician measuring the distance between the American dream and American reality.”
