Ann Ingalls, author, to visit

Join us in welcoming Ann Ingalls, the author of The Little Piano Girl, to Jefferson City on February 3rd at 6:30 p.m. She will read her book, share photos and music from the period, and have games for the kids.

The Little Piano Girl is the story of Mary Lou Williams, an American jazz pianist and composer. Mary Lou Williams, like Mozart, began playing the piano when she was four; at eight she became a professional musician. She wrote and arranged music for Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, and was one of the most powerful women in jazz.
