DuEwa Frazier - Alice's Musical Debut

Saturday, July 6, 4pm

Left Bank Books

Left Bank Books presents local author DuEwa Frazier, who will read from and sign her new book Alice's Musical Debut.

7- year old Alice McLeod has a special ear, an ear for musical sounds in and around her home in Detroit. A thunderstorm keeps Alice awake one night and as she listens to the storm from her bedroom window, the sounds of an owl and the rain, seem to call her name. Playing outside becomes a sensory adventure for Alice. The bees in the flowers, the swish of the trees moving in the breeze, the sound of an ice cream truck, and the laughter of children, combine to form music in Alice's world. Alice's Musical Debutreimagines one day in the childhood of the late jazz pianist, harpist, composer, and organist Alice Coltrane - wife of the legendary jazz saxophonist and composer, John Coltrane. Set in the 1940s, Alice's Musical Debut reveals the magical connection young Alice McLeod has with nature sounds and musical rhythms. Alice's Musical Debut is a story filled with poetic language and imagery that speaks to the hearts of all children.

First swimming lessons can be exciting and terrifying, but this joyful and imaginative guide shows young readers how to conquer the pool.

From what to wear (a bathing suit, of course!) to what to expect (no, your teacher will not be a mermaid), 1, 2, 3 Jump! covers the what if’s and how to’s of getting in the pool for the first time. There’s a lot to worry about (can I be sucked in the filter?) and even more to be excited about (when can I wear flippers?), and our narrator has thought of everything. By the time she’s ready, you to will want to jump in!
