Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments

Join us for a special story time launch party celebrating Emily Jiang's collaboration with April Chu: Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments.

Every musician knows that learning to play an instrument has its challenges and its rewards. There's the embarrassing first day of rehearsal, but also the joy of making friends in the orchestra. There's dealing with slippery concert dress, or simply getting swept up in the music. The twelve children in this book are just like any other musicians practicing their instruments and preparing for a concert.

But what sets these music lovers apart is that they all play traditional Chinese musical instruments in a Chinese orchestra. Including both flights of fancy and practical considerations, lively poems capture each child's musical experience with a different Chinese instrument, while sidebars provide more information about each one. This collection of poetry, full of gorgeous illustrations, depicts each fascinating instrument and takes readers on a delightful musical journey.

Join us to celebrate this joint debut with an afternoon full of Chinese food, musical activities based on their book, and giveaways. And come prepared to learn a Chinese folksong.

Wednesday, April 23, 7:00 p.m. The Inventor's Secret

New from Andrea Cremer, the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightshade novels, comes an action-packed alternate-history steampunk adventure.

THE INVENTOR’S SECRET asks the question: What if the British had won the American Revolution?

In this alternate history, a band of teens—children of the revolutionaries—live deep in hiding on the edges of Britain's industrial empire. But when an exile with no memory seeks shelter in their camp, he brings with him new dangers and horrible secrets about the future that awaits them all. His presence compels the teens to seek answers in Britannia's exquisite Floating City, but navigating a world of high society and political intrigue turns out to be more treacherous than the revolution itself.
