Celebrate the Book~ Itzhak: A Boy Who Loved the Violin

Sat, May 15 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am EDT

Itzhak: A Boy Who Loved the Violin tells the story of Itzhak Perlman's boyhood, from his birth in Tel Aviv in 1945 to his rise to fame on the Ed Sullivan Show, where he performed as a  13-year-old child prodigy.  Lyrical language and colorful illustrations dynamically convey how the music can evoke emotions that lead to genius! Itzhak: The Boy Who Loved the Violin is an American Library Association 2021 Schneider Family Book Award Honor title. This program is suitable for elementary students of all ages and their families.
