In their forthcoming book, Adam “ADROCK” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond detail the bands’ evolution; their collaborations with legendary producers Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; their debut album, Licensed to Ill,  that became the first hip hop record ever to hit #1; their work as activists, specifically for Tibet; the loss of member Adam “MCA” Yauch; and more. Beastie Boys Book includes rare photos, a cookbook, a graphic novel, and contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, and Spike Jonze. Tickets to this event include a copy of “Beastie Boys Book.”
