Rosanne Cash Performs at Miami Book Fair

MIAMI (AP) — Singer Rosanne Cash opened the Miami Book Fair International with an impromptu performance.

Cash read from her memoir “Composed” and sang several songs on a borrowed blue guitar on Sunday night.

Cash said she finds melody in prose and tried to emulate her favorite writers as she worked on the book.

Fantasy writer Christopher Paolini also talked about his Inheritance series with the crowd. The Miami Herald ( ) reports that the 26-year-old got laughs when he described wearing “billowy pantaloons” on his first book tour and confessed that he originally named the hero of his books Kevin. The hero of the series was renamed Eragon, which also is the title of Paolini’s first novel.

The book fair runs through Nov. 20 at Miami Dade College.
