Now entering its sixth week, One Book, One Philadelphia continues to offer engaging events for the whole community. Whether you’re drawn to The Soloist's themes of homelessness or classical music, One Book offers something for everyone! On Wednesday, the Mount Airy Learning Tree will host Leaving No One Solo
—a panel discussion on homelessness, featuring WHYY’s Dave Heller as moderator and representatives from Dignity Housing, Project H.O.M.E, and Ready, Willing, and Able.
Also happening on Wednesday evening is an exploration of Stravinsky’s first major ballet, The Firebird. Held at Parkway Central, A Stravinsky Conversation will feature a musician from the Philadelphia Orchestra and a music historian. And just this past weekend, the Parkway Central Library and One Book hosted approximately 110 people for an interactive ballet demonstration by the Pennsylvania II, an eight-member troupe of pre-professional dancers. Children joined the dancers on stage and shared the spotlight during an audience participation and performance. Check out the photos to the right!
