Hooked on Books seeks jazz musicians, past patrons of the Cotton Club, or past friends of Fannie Mae Duncan, to attend and share at the 'Everybody Welcome Book Celebration' on Saturday, March 25, a book signing of EVERYBODY WELCOME A Memoir of Fannie Mae Duncan and the Cotton Club by Fannie Mae Duncan and Kathleen F. Esmiol.
"We'd love to have people come and tell their Cotton Club stories at Hooked on Books during the book signing. Fannie Mae is an important person in our collective cultural history, and an especially important catalyst for integrating our town," says Hooked on Books co-owner Jim Ciletti. "We're also planning for live jazz musicians. Yes, everybody's welcome - if you'd like to give an impromptu flurry of jazz, you're welcome, too!"
