Story Time with Lisa Rogers

November 12, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Local author Lisa Rogers returns to Hummingbird Books to share her latest book, Beautiful Noise: The Music of John Cage.

Free to attend – no RSVP required.


“Tantalizing glimpses of a composer who challenged the very definition of music.”– Kirkus Reviews

“A great introduction to a composer who was a disruptor and pioneer” — School Library Journal

Meet John Cage, the pioneering, inspiring composer who believed all sound—from the crash of a slamming door to the whirr of a blender to the whoosh of the wind—was music. Told in second-person, this picture book asks readers to imagine the many possibilities for making and listening to beautiful noise. Beautiful Noise: The Music of John Cage is about creativity, ingenuity, perseverance, mindfulness–and it’s lots of fun, too!  Gorgeously illustrated by award-winning illustrator Il Sung Na
