Nicole Mones: presentation and book signing of Night in Shanghai
In 1936, classical pianist Thomas Greene is recruited to Shanghai to lead a jazz orchestra of fellow African-American expats. From being flat broke in segregated Baltimore to living in a mansion with servants of his own, he becomes the toast of a city obsessed with music, money, pleasure and power, even as it ignores the rising winds of war. Based on a true story. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 626.449.2742, ext. 20.
