Story Time: Elizabeth Zunon presents The Legendary Miss Lena Horne
From the illustrator of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind comes The Legendary Miss Lena Horne, a new biography of the pioneering African-American actress, singer, and civil rights activist. Lena Horne was born into the freedom struggle, and as she grew older chased her dream of becoming an actress. But the roles she was considered for were maids and mammies, stereotypes that she refused to play. Yet Lena never gave up. The Legendary Miss Lena Horne tells the story of how she found not only her voice, but her calling. Join Elizabeth Zunon for a reading and drawing story time, celebrating the extraordinary life of this icon and legend. Ages 3 to 8.
