Lyric text both mutes and underscores the beauty and struggle of opera star Leontyne Price. Born in Mississippi in 1927, and inspired by Marian Anderson, Leontyne faced closed doors, but also found encouragement to develop her vocal gifts. She became the first black singer to star at La Scala, in Milan, and eventually became one of the first black singers to become a leading artist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, “[blowing] open the door that Marian left ajar.” Brought to life in vibrant, swirling colors by award-winning illustrator, Raul Colon -- Joan
The Whisper is the second installment in Aaron Starmer’s Riverman Trilogy. With its blend of myth and reality, The Whisper reminded me both of Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane and The Neverending Story. As Alistair chases the Riverman across a patchwork of imaginary worlds, a parallel story unfolds, that of Aquavania’s strange origin. I loved how the end of The Riverman left me hanging, unsure what to believe. The Whisper leaps into the dark, twisting realm of Aquavania, offering multiple realities to choose from. In the end, Alistair has to decide what he believes, and so do you. Choose wisely! -- Katy
