Join the staff online from the Music & Recorded Sound Division of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts for a discussion of The Magic of Beverly Sills by Nancy Guy. We are happy to have the author as a guest participant.
With her superb coloratura soprano, passion for the world of opera, and down-to-earth personality, Beverly Sills made high art accessible to millions from the time of her meteoric rise to stardom in 1966 until her death in 2007. An unlikely pop culture phenomenon, Sills was equally at ease on talk shows, on the stage, and in the role of arts advocate and administrator. Intimate and revealing, The Magic of Beverly Sills explores the alchemy of art, magnetism, community, and emotion that produced an American icon.
