Teen Critics Meeting: Music Was IT (April 2012)
This biography of American composer, pianist, and conductor Leonard Bernstein takes readers from his childhood in Boston to his spectacular professional conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic in 1943. Illustrated with archival photographs, mostly from the Leonard Bernstein Collection at the Library of Congress, this book showcases the verve, energy, and wit of one of the greatest American musicians of the 20th century.
