Elvis Costello will discuss his new memoir, “Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink,” at 7 p.m. Oct. 20 at BookPeople, 603 N. Lamar Blvd.

The acclaimed musician will be in conversation with Evan Smith. Tickets, which are available at BookPeople, are required for the event and include a presigned copy of the memoir.

The memoir tracks his rise to music success and tells stories about his co-writers. But it also includes details about the less-appealing side of musical fame.

He also discusses the process or writing and recording such legendary albums like “My Aim Is True,” “This Year’s Model,” “Almost Blue,” “Imperial Bedroom” and “King of America.”

BookPeople’s event with Elvis Costello is one of several major author events hosted by the Austin store this fall. Events with John Irving, Mitch Albom, Nigella Lawson, Jonathan Franzen, Mary Karr, Chelsea Clinton and many others have already been announced. Visit bookpeople.com for a full calendar of upcoming events.
