The Reginald F. Lewis Museum welcomes renowned ballerina Misty Copeland, the first African-American soloist in the last two decades at the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. Copeland will give an author talk and book signing of her memoir, as well as her first children’s book. The memoir, Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, explores Copeland’s inspiring journey, illuminating her meteoric rise from a challenging childhood to become a world-class ballerina and the new face for Under Armour.
Additionally, she will present her first children’s book Firebird. The book tells the story of a young girl who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Copeland has reached. She encourages this young girl’s faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can dance the part of the Firebird. A book signing will follow.
