Deck out in your most fabulous flapper fashions and Gatsby garments in honor of the new release from the funny, dark and wildly inventive author of the Printz Award-winning Going Bovine and the acclaimed Gemma Doyle series. With special guest emcee Maureen Johnson (The Last Little Blue Envelope). Jazz Age-inspired musicians Dandy Wellington and his Band bring to life this highly anticipated paranormal novel set in a cinematic 20s New York, with video, a reading by Ella Rae Peck (Gossip Girl, Bachelorette), music and more. Ages 14 and up.
"Maybe it's my unnatural love of flapper dresses, wisecracking heroines, outrageous glamour, Dorothy Parker, and anything related to The Great Gatsby, but I've been dying to write something about 1920s New York City for some time."-Libba Bray
Inspired by the Big Band Era of Jazz, Dandy Wellington and his Band have taken the sounds of the 1930's and 40's and created a world of well dressed music. With a passion for obscure songs steeped in the Jazz tradition, Dandy Wellington has assembled a catalog of music that invokes an atmosphere of class. From the golden age of cinema, to the bounce of New Orleans, each song is hand selected and played to perfection by a band cut from the cloth of elegance.16da
