Lee Wilson discusses and signs Rebel on Pointe: A Memoir of Ballet and Broadway

Book Soup LA

8818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 60069

4:00pm

Short, plump, pigeon-toed, and never good enough for mom, Lee Wilson dared to dream she could grow up to be a star. In this uplifting memoir, Wilson describes how she grand jeted from the stifling suburbia of the 1950s, a world of rigid gender roles, to the only domain where women and men were equally paid and equally respected--in grand, historic dance theaters and under the bright lights of the Broadway stage. At the age of sixteen, Wilson made her classical ballet debut in Monte Carlo. Eight months later, she thrilled to the sound of her first bravos--and she never looked back. After touring Europe and dancing with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in New York, she set her sights on Broadway, where she danced in many Broadway shows, including Hello Dolly! and the record-breaking performance of A Chorus Line. Rebel on Pointe immerses the reader in a remarkable and visionary world. It lifts the veil of myth surrounding legendary dance icons like George Balanchine to reveal the real men and women who have made American dance and dancers an international phenomenon. Wilson expertly depicts how her profession--at times considered so rigid and exacting-- was a leading force in the liberation of women from the prison of post-war society. The hard-won gains and the maddening setbacks of the gender revolution are seen here through the eyes of a young dancer searching for freedom one pas at a time.

Buddha Monk and Mickey Hess discuss and sign The Dirty Version: On Stage, in the Studio, and in the Streets with Ol' Dirty

Book Soup LA

8818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 60069

5:00pm

On the tenth anniversary of Ol' Dirty Bastard's death, his right-hand man and best friend, Buddha Monk, presents The Dirty Version--the first biography of the hip-hop superstar and founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, to be written by someone from his inner circle.  Ol' Dirty Bastard rocketed to fame with the Wu-Tang Clan, the raucous and renegade group that forever altered the hip-hop world. ODB was one of the Clan's wildest icons and most inventive performers, and when he died of an overdose in 2004, at the age of thirty-five, millions of fans mourned the loss. ODB lives on in epic proportions and his antics are legend: he once picked up his welfare check in a limousine; lifted a burning car off a four-year-old girl in Brooklyn; stole a fifty-dollar pair of sneakers on tour at the peak of his success. Many have questioned whether his stunts were carefully calculated or the result of paranoia and mental instability.
