Former Sonic Youth star Kim Gordon is set to embark on a guest-filled book tour for the release of her memoir Girl in a Band.

The rocker will set out on an 11-date trek beginning in New York on 23 February (15) and she will sit down with various music and literary figures for question-and-answer sessions.

Sleater-Kinney guitarist and comedienne Carrie Brownstein, Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster, singer-songwriter Aimee Mann and Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt will be among the artists who will appear during the tour.
