Join Mt. Lebanon’s own nationally award-winning illustrator Stacy Innerst and pianist Tom Roberts as they share the art of telling stories through pictures and music. Learn about the music and life of George Gershwin, how his music shaped Innerst’s illustrations, and create a musical illustration of your own. School-age kids through adult. Thursday, July 27, 7 pm

“Through evocative storytelling, expressive hand-lettered text, and dynamic paintings, Slade and Innerst explore the making of Gershwin's acclaimed "Rhapsody in Blue" in an account that's as ‘lively, fun, and different’ as the works the composer wrote… a rousing look at one of the defining contributions to the Great American Songbook.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"One of American music’s masterpieces, ‘Rhapsody in Blue,’ is introduced here along with its composer, George Gershwin…. Slade and Innerst... work beautifully together to create a book that builds to a crescendo just as ‘Rhapsody’ does. The swirling text wraps around the inventive (and mostly blue) art, both literally and figuratively, capturing the time period as well as the dazzling musical piece…. This is fitting celebration of a musical milestone—keep a copy of the song cued up for curious listeners." —Booklist, starred review

“… Rather than offering an overview of his (Gershwin’s) relatively short life, Slade provides a deeper look into his creative process and the ways in which he melded classical, ragtime, jazz, and blues to create a sound purely his own. … VERDICT Readers will get a glimpse into Gershwin's mind and find the music within. Highly recommended for purchase.”—Clara Hendricks, Cambridge Public Library, MA, School Library Journal
