Event: Special Showing of Scott Joplin 

Starring Billy Dee Williams and Art Carney, Rated PG, 92 minutes

“Music Week” wraps up this year’s Adult Summer Reading Program! Join us for a special showing of the movie, “Scott Joplin” a celebration of a great American composer. Scott Joplin, the turn-of-the-century Black composer virtually invented ragtime music. But, his success came only as an epitaph. The Pulitzer Prize-winning composer's struggles have been immortalized in this biographical film, a Motown Production. Billy Dee Williams gives an outstanding performance as Joplin and the film features plenty of Joplin's music, from the ever popular "Maple Leaf Rag" to the lovely "Solace."
