Bruce Springsteen to promote new autobiography at the Free Library

Receive a signed copy of 'Born to Run'

Bruce Springsteen will be at the Free Library of Philadelphia on Sept. 29 to promote his new book "Born to Run." Philadelphia will be the third stop on his book tour, which starts — where else — in Freehold, New Jersey.

In the autobiography, which Springsteen privately wrote over the past seven years, he discusses his drive to be a musician, the rise of the E Street Band and his personal struggles.

So far, Springsteen has earned 20 Grammys, two Golden Globes, an Oscar and induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Free Library describes "Born to Run" as having the "same tender, raw, and wise intensity of Springsteen’s greatest songs."
