The new children’s book by John Robert Allman with illustrations by Peter Emmerich is available now.
In celebration of the launch of new children’s book A is For Audra, author John Robert Allman and illustrator Peter Emmerich welcomed guests for a special reading with Joanna Gleason, Christine Ebersole, and Alexis Michelle at Books of Wonder. The event, honoring the November 12 release of the book, benefited Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.
A Is for Audra is an illustrated guide that serves as an introduction to the most influential female performers to ever hit the Great White Way. From McDonald to Stritch, Kristin Chenoweth to Patti LuPone, Bernadette Peters to Liza Minnelli, this is a book all kids (and many adults) can enjoy as they learn about and fall in love with the theatre.
Behind-the-scenes stories from the original productions of Little Shop of Horrors, Steel Magnolias, and The Boy from Oz are included in the forthcoming book, which just launched a KIckstarter campaign.
