Punk Rock Play-date with Eric Morse & WHAT IS PUNK
St. Louis native Eric Morse reads from his debut children's book What Is Punk?, a wonderfully illustrated children’s history of punk rock, followed by a coloring activity for kids and a punk rock singalong! We're opening early today so join us for a playdate! All ages welcome.
ERIC MORSE was the founding editor of Trampoline House magazine, named Best New Online Magazine by SXSW. As an entrepreneur and as director of direct-to-consumer business at Warner Music Group, Morse has devoted himself to spreading the gospel of great music to young ears. He lives within a stone’s throw of New York City with his wife and four children.
“A punk primer for the youngest set. . . . Yi’s incredibly detailed clay figures are a kinetic and inspired art choice. Their crazy creativity matches the expressive spirit of punk. . . . As [Morse] points out, the best way to learn about punk it just to listen. . . . If invested adults love the topic, a shared reading experience can’t be beat.”
“Why It’s Wild: A history of punk music for kids illustrated in Gumby-esque claymation (minus the –mation).”
