Meet the authors Dennis Pratt and Dr. Tom Shaker and learn about Rhode Island's great jazz history! 

From Providence’s legendary Celebrity Club, the first interracial night club in New England, to the renowned Monday night Big Band jazz gigs that began with Duke Belaire and continue today with John Allmark, A Treasury of Rhode Island Jazz & Swing Musicians will delight the jazz lover in all of us, whether you’re from Rhode Island or not.

Professor Tom Shaker hosts The Soul Serenade, a soul & funk radio show on WICN in Worcester, MA. He has worked in video and film production in Los Angeles and Boston and is also a filmmaker. (Look for “Do It Man; The Story of The Celebrity Club” coming soon.)

Dennis Pratt is a graduate of the Navy School of Music, and Berklee College of Music. He found his way from Boston to Rhode Island as a high school band director and professional musician. He has performed with many of the musicians listed in this book.  Weaver Library audiences have enjoyed Dennis's performances as well!

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Sowams: The Untold History- Weaver Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Joyce May   401-434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

It can be argued that Sowams is the pivotal place of cultural exchange between indigenous people and colonizing settlers in North America. Helen Tjader discusses the incredible role of our local land and its people to our national history with a special focus on East Providence.

For the past 25 years, Helen Tjader has volunteered with towns and local land trusts to protect open space in Rhode Island leading to historic research, stewardship work and, statewide, to Land Trust Days. Her view is that being out on the land is the only way to begin to appreciate our special places including Sowams.
