Author To Visit Kearney Branch!

Ann Ingalls featured guest at Kearney Branch’s Author Chat
Ann Ingalls will be at the MCPL Kearney Branch to talk about her new juvenile picture book, Little Piano Girl, Monday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m.
Little Piano Girl tells the true, childhood story of Mary Lou Williams, the first lady of jazz. Like Mozart, Mary Lou Williams began playing the piano when she was four. She later wrote and arranged music for Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and was one of the most powerful women in jazz.
During her writing career, Ingalls has written for Highlights, Highlights High Five, Primary Treasure, The Kansas City Star, Way of St. Francis, Reiman Publications, Babytalk Magazine, and many other publishers.
Author Chats is a new program series at the Mid Continent Public Library Kearney Branch that offers library patrons a chance to talk with the people who write the books they love in a casual, and lively atmosphere.
If you're a jazz aficionado, a picture book lover, a writer, or just have the evening free, come to the Kearney Branch to meet Ann Ingalls. She'll be happy to autograph your copy of Little Piano Girl.
Reservations are required. Call the Kearney Branch at 628-5055 for more information.Tags: picture books, events, children's programs
