Event Description:

Meet & Chat with former Boston Ballet dancer & author Laura Young.
Laura Young will be chatting with customers & signing copies of her new autobiography.At once a self-portrait, a character study of Boston, and an intimate, inside look at the art of ballet. . . . In this book, with candor and grace, Young allows us to enter the real-life world behind the one on stage.”—Boston Globe

As a charter member of Boston Ballet and its predecessor, New England Civic Ballet, Laura Young has been affiliated with the company longer than any other dancer in its history. This book is both a memoir of her personal journey and a fascinating account of Boston Ballet’s rise from a regional troupe to the internationally recognized company that it is today. It is interspersed with ruminations on the history of ballet, stories from the company’s Balanchine-influenced early years under founder E. Virginia Williams, and recollections from noteworthy tours, including those featuring the legendary Rudolf Nureyev, with whom Young was frequently paired. After retiring from the stage, Young has continued her affiliation with Boston Ballet, both as an administrator and a teacher. Working in collaboration with Janine Parker, Young has written a lively, informed, and entertaining memoir.
