Children's LiteratureAcclaimed author and filmmaker Alan Govenar did extensive interviewing with Norma Miller to write this memoir, meeting and recording her passionate views of dance and the past. Vibrant writing brings across the early dancing of one of the most noted performers of the acrobatic Lindy Hop. Miller's viewpoint gives a picturesque view of the Jazz Age and the Harlem Renaissance. French's illustrations give a strong sense of mood and period, but especially the wild movements of the dramatic dancing. 2006, Candlewick, Ages 9 to 12.
