Event Details


Author Orel Protopopescu will discuss her book Dancing Past the Light: The Life of Tanaquil Le Clercq. George Balanchine's muse and last wife, "Tanny" was a unique fusion of comical wit and dramatic allure. Even after contracting polio and becoming confined to a wheelchair, she continued to dance with her hands and voice and never lost her sense of fun. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Registration is underway. This program is cosponsored by the Friends of the Northport-East Northport Public Library.
