Ani DiFranco will promote her upcoming memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream, and corresponding mixtape with a North American tour. The summer trek launches May 3rd at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and wraps August 16th at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, Colorado.

The U.S. run includes an 11-date book tour that kicks off May 7th in New York City and winds down May 22nd in New Orleans. Additional ticket information is available at the singer-songwriter’s website.

At the shows, DiFranco will offer her “No Walls” mixtape, described in a statement as “her current take on the songs related to” the memoir. The tape will also be available May 9th in digital form.

“So here is my mixtape for you, like the kind that I would make you on cassette if it was, like, 1993 and I was really into you,” DiFranco said in a statement. “It’s a flight of Ani songs that I took the liberty of revisiting, solo stylie, twenty… (thirty?!) years later, songs that factor (either literally or figuratively) into my memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream.” 

The book, out May 7th, chronicles the folk-rock artist’s early life, career, feminism, political activism, philanthropy and entrepreneurship. The project follows her 19th and most recent studio album, 2017’s Binary.
