This event was originally scheduled for Tuesday, October 5.
Teenage Siena lives and breathes ballet. Her dedication earns her a spot at the School of American Ballet; her long-term plan is New York City Ballet or bust. In spite of her talent, Siena struggles with self-doubt and injury, leading her to question her dream. But what else could she do, when ballet is all she knows? This loving ode to ballet also questions its sometimes grueling practices. Siena Cherson Siegel’s graphic memoir of her own experiences as a young ballet dancer will engage readers of all ages who love dance. Illustrations by Mark Siegel exquisitely capture the dancers’ graceful movements.
Siena Cherson Siegel is an author and former dancer who trained at the School of American Ballet. To Dance and Tiny Dancer are stories from her life.
Mark Siegel is known both as an author, illustrator, and as the editorial director of First Second Books, a Macmillan imprint that publishes graphic novels for all ages.
