About this Event:
This collection of classic childrens poetry, adapted to music by Natalie Merchant, opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears. Leave Your Sleep features a daring and delightful selection, ranging from the beloved (e.e. cummings, Edward Lear, and Jack Prelutsky) to the undiscovered (the young Nathalia Crane). Natalie Merchants brilliant musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with author Barbara McClintocks richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking and listening experience.
Barbara McClintock has written and illustrated many distinguished books for young readers, including Adele & Simon. Her books have been named four times to The New Yo
