The launch party on March 5 begins at 2 pm and goes until 3 pm. Bring your copy of "The Piano" to be signed, or copies will be available for purchase at the event.
About the book: "The Piano" is about the friendship between a girl and her piano, and how that bond deepens and changes over time. Told from the perspective of the piano, it shows how playing an instrument is as much about love as it is about commitment and practice. The book was released from Black Rose Writing publisher on February 3, 2022.
"Portland pianist and songwriter Chari Smith wrote this charming picture book about the experience of learning how
to play an instrument from the perspective of a piano and its journey through one young musician’s life. The illustrations by Elle Smith, the author’s daughter, add warmth and depth to the story." - Amy Wang, The Oregonian
The event is free and masks will be required for all guests. Registration is recommended, which you can do at the event page. Come celebrate books and music with Chari and Elle!
