Books on the Move
Firebird: Misty Copeland

Join New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Teaching Artist Wincey Terry for a free reading of Firebird by Misty Copeland. In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl–an every girl–whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl's faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird. Lyrical and affecting text paired with bold, striking illustrations that are some of Caldecott Honoree Christopher Myers's best work, makes Firebird perfect for aspiring ballerinas everywhere. This event will be available at kravis.org/njpac (https://www.kravis.org/njpac/) for 48 hours beginning TODAY (February 19, 2021) at 9 am.
