Rent Party Jazz
By Lori Calabrese Writes!
How could this bright, colorful book not grab your attention? The illustrations are amazing and fun, and truly capture the allure of New Orleans Jazz. But what it also offers is a look into Rent Parties. . . . Even though the illustrations are what drew me to this book, the story is a powerful one with people coming together to help others in a time of need. . . . I thought it was interesting how Miller explains that national events like Farm Aid are contemporary versions of the rent party on a much larger scale. This is a fun and educational read that would be a wonderful way to celebrate Black History month! — Lori Calabrese Writes!
