Meet Joe Milliken!
After eleven years of working on this wonderful project, it is a delight for Joe to present Let's Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars to the public. There have been many family members, friends, and fans of Benjamin Orr and The Cars who have supported him faithfully through the process, providing him with encouragement and fresh motivation when he needed it most.
Though Joe is unable to head out on a full book tour, he will be appearing in key locations to meet readers, sign books, and share more about Benjamin Orr. He is also eager to offer his sincere gratitude to those who celebrate Ben's life and legacy, and to those that have followed the book project when Joe was in the trenches.
Please check back here often as we post upcoming events. We hope to see you soon!
