Stompin’ at the Savoy: The Story of Norma Miller

Out of stock
As a girl growing up in Harlem, Norma Miller longed to dance at the Savoy Ballroom, "Home of Happy Feet." She spent her Sundays dancing on the sidewalk outside, gathering tips from passersby-until one day she caught the eye of the world's most famous dancer, Twist Mouth George. "Hey, kid!" he said. "How would you like to dance with me?" Just like that, Norma was in. In this first-person account, a legendary Lindy Hopper paints a portrait of the Jazz Age as she remembers it. Black-and-white art.
