NYC punk legend Richard Hell is celebrating the paperback release of his autobiography I Dreamed I Was A Very Clean Tramp this month with some live talks/interviews. He was already interviewed by Robert Christgau in Brooklyn a few weeks ago, and this week he will be at Strand Books on Thursday (3/20), reading an excerpt from his book and then being interviewed by NYU professor Bryan Waterman (who wrote the 33 1/3 volume for Television's Marquee Moon).

Then on Saturday (3/22) at NYU, Pitchfork's Brandon Stosuy will interview Hell at 7 PM in the Great Hall at Cooper Union.
