Pam Muñoz Ryan - When Marian Sang

When Marian Sang

The True Recital of Marian Anderson

Author: Pam Muñoz Ryan Illustrator: Brian Selznick

  • AGES 5 - 8 
  • Genre Biography and Autobiography

A harmonious introduction to one of our country's most important singers — as envisioned by two of our industry's most important voices.

Most people know of Marian Anderson from her historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1939, which drew an integrated crowd of 75,000 people in pre-Civil Rights America. While this momentous event showcased the uniqueness of her voice, the strength of her character, and the struggles of the times in which she lived, it is only part of her story.

Like the operatic arias Marian would come to sing, Pam Muñoz Ryan's text is as moving as a libretto, and Caldecott Honor medalist Brian Selznick's pictures are as exquisitely detailed and elaborately designed as a stage set. The woman who emerges most profoundly from their harmonious biography is a role model of courage, for even in the face of enormous obstacles Marian maintained her grace and dignity and fulfilled her dreams.

Listen to Pam Muñoz Ryan read When Marian Sang.
