The book is not only a unique illustrated biography, but a moving account that reveals the family's rise to success, their struggles along the way, and their impact on contemporary music. Illustrated with exacting detail and written in the Southern dialect of the time, its dynamic narrative is pure Americana. It is also a story of success and failure, of poverty and wealth, of racism and tolerance, of creativity and business, and of the power of music and love.
The author and illustrator have teamed up on one previous book, Oregon Trail: The Road to Destiny, which we're also huge fans of here at the Garden! They've got a blog going for The Carter Family. Check it out here.
There will be live music by Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss! at this event, as well as a slide show. Books will be available for sale and signing.
