Biography

Rob Kirkpatrick was born and raised in upstate New York. He received his Bachelor’s from Rutgers University, his Master’s degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz, and his Doctorate from Binghamton University. After graduate school, he began a career as an acquisitions editor in book publishing. He has published such authors as Sean Lahman, Linda Cohn, John Hemingway, Mark Oliver Everett of the Eels (band), and Tom Ridge.[1] [2]

Kirkpatrick wrote 1969: The Year Everything Changed, published in 2009 for the 40th anniversary of that year. 1969 was featured in a two-page story by Craig Wilson (columnist) in USA Today.[3] The book received positive reviews from Booklist, which called it "A riveting look at a pivotal year,"[4] and Library Journal, which said, "In this compelling account, Kirkpatrick treats the tumultuous events of 1969 with the skills of a journalist, a historian, a sociologist, and a sportswriter and manages to insert moments of lightness and triviality into his grand tour." [5]

He is also the author of Magic in the Night: The Words and Music of Bruce Springsteen as well as Cecil Travis of the Washington Senators: The War-Torn Career of an All-Star Shortstop.

Kirkpatrick has appeared as a guest DJ on Sirius XM Radio's E Street Radio and as a commentator in the History (TV channel) documentary Sex in '69: The Sexual Revolution in America.
