Graphic Novel Book Group with Emily discusses Showtime at the Apollo: The Epic Tale of Harlem's Legendary Theater

Led (virtually!) by Greenlight bookseller Emily, our graphic novel book group reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For September, the group discusses Showtime at the Apollo by author Ted Fox and illustrator James Otis Smith. Fox and Smith bring to life Harlem’s legendary theater in this celebrated graphic novel adaptation of Fox’s definitive, critically acclaimed history of the Apollo. Since its inception as an African-American theater in 1934, the Apollo and the thousands of legendary entertainers who have performed there led the way in swing, bebop, rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, soul, funk, and hip hop–along with the latest in dance and comedy. Today, the Apollo enjoys an almost mythical status. With its breathtaking art, Showtime at the Apollo illuminates the theater’s significance in music history, African-American history, and urban culture.
