Event Details:

Join us at Kent Branch Library for our annual commemoration of the birth of Toledo-born piano legend Art Tatum. This year, as a special tribute, Tatum devotee and scholar Dr. Imelda Hunt will present original works of poetry from her book Does A Genius…A Tribute to Art Tatum. The poems are compiled from her reflections on his music and the many Art Tatum stories that were told to her by other musicians, his neighbors, friends, and sister, Arlene Tatum. The event will also feature a sampling of Tatum's brilliant recordings. Light refreshments. Free and open to the public.
