Terry Teachout, Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington

Wednesday, March 26 at 6:30pm

Central Library, Poe Room 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

In Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington, Terry Teachout reveals the many layers of a man as unique and complex as the music he created. Drawing on candid unpublished interviews with Ellington, revealing oral-history transcripts, and other little-known primary sources, Teachout tells Ellington's story as no one else ever has. Spanning the first three quarters of the 20th century, Ellington's life both reflected and shaped the dynamic cultural shifts of his time.

Terry Teachout is a jazz musician, drama critic for the Wall Street Journal, and the author of numerous books including Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong and The Skeptic: A Life of H.L. Mencken.

The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the books for sale at a book signing following the program.
