Bolden/Moore Library


On Friday, January 29th, the Bolden Moore Library will have a special virtual program dedicated to the book Frankie Finds the Blues by Joel Harper. This is a program produced in support from the Central Mississippi Blues Society.

When Frankie’s grandmother invites him to a blues concert, he’s hesitant at first because he loves hip hop! But he can’t resist his beloved grandmother’s invitation. Little does he know, that night ignites his passion for learning to play the blues. Along the way, an afternoon in the park opens a door for Frankie that proves to be life-changing. He not only learns to play guitar, but he also discovers the roots of the blues and its profound influence on popular music.

In the video, Abdul Rasheed, blues artist, Jackson resident and member of the Central Mississippi Blues Society, Inc., reads the book as illustrations from the pages, created by Gary Kelley, are shown.

For more information, please contact the R.G. Bolden/Anna-Bell Moore Library at 601-922-6076.
