April 30 is Independent Bookstore Day!

April 30 is Independent Bookstore Day. Which means . . . your favorite independent bookstores will be (hopefully) packed with customers looking to stock up on new titles.

I am very pleased that my book Freedom of Expression: Interviews With Women in Jazz is available in several excellent independent bookstores here in Houston, TX as well as my former home, New York City. If you haven't picked up a copy, consider visiting one of these stores (see below). Most of them also offer online ordering, so if you prefer not to use Amazon, remember, you have other options!

Houston, TX:

You can pick up a copy of my book at Brazos Bookstore, the Jung Center of Houston Bookstore, and Casa Ramirez FOLKART Gallery.

New York City: 

My book is available at McNally Jackson Books (home of the Espresso Book Machine!) as well as Bluestockings, a 100% volunteer-powered and collectively-owned radical bookstore, fair trade cafe, and activist center in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Published in November 2015, Freedom of Expression: Interviews With Women in Jazz is a timely collection of inspiring and in-depth interviews with 37 women musicians of all ages, nationalities, and races, who represent nearly every style of jazz one can imagine. The interviewees include Carmen LundyTerri Lyne CarringtonEliane EliasHelen SungAnat CohenDiane SchuurSherrie MaricleSharel CassityJane MonheitEllen SeelingCheryl BentyneBrandee YoungerJane Ira Bloom, and many other incredible artists.

The 320-page book includes a 25-page history of jazz, as well as introductions to each interview, to provide helpful context for readers who are unaware of the contributions by women to the development of jazz.
