National Poet Laureate Rita Dove will read from her acclaimed most-recent book of poems, Sonata Mulattica, about the historical Afro-European violinist George Bridgetower. Coyne, a talented, inspired and versatile young musician, who possesses an amazing spirit and desires to reach out to the world through his music will join Ms. Dove. Extended scenes from a documentary of the same name, inspired by the book, will premiere at the event. The film features Dove and Coyne. The book has been described by the American Library Association as "a mischievous and sensuous cycle of linked poems that explores genius and power, class and race."
