Kenny Loggins will play some of his classic hits and discuss his four-decade-long career as one of America’s most iconic rock stars, and his latest project – a bestselling children’s book based on his hit song, “Footloose.”

Loggins, who has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards, co-wrote the book The Unimaginable Life: Lessons Learned on the Path of Love. His songs have been hits over the last four decades, including “This Is It,” “I’m Alright,” “Footloose,” and “Danger Zone.” He was one-half of the duo Loggins and Messina (with Jim Messina) in the 1970s, and the pair had numerous singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts with songs like “Your Mama Don’t Dance” and “Thinking of You.”

In addition to his string of successful recordings, Kenny became the first major rock star to dedicate himself to recording music for children and families. His album Return to Pooh Corner remains the best-selling children’s album of the last 20 years.

Mara Davis will host the conversation with Loggins Saturday, Nov. 5 at 8:15 p.m. at the MJCCA in Dunwoody. The book festival at the Marcus Jewish Community Center runs through Nov. 20.
