Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring
Through lyrical prose and lush watercolor illustrations, young readers can learn about trailblazer Martha Graham's innovative choreography for Appalachian Spring in 1944. The book steps behind the scenes to show composer Aaron Copland at work, Graham's rehearsals, and the project's synergy with set designer Isamu Noguchi, all told in language that's clear for children ages 6 and older. The book's engaging voice, attention to detail, and historical bent helped it win the Orbis Pictus Award for outstanding children's nonfiction.
