A wonderful new book for children from Annick Press. The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson is based on the true story of Joshua Bell, the renowned American violinist who famously took his instrument down into the Washington D.C. subway for a free concert. Dusan Petricic's gorgeous illustrations show how more than a thousand commuters rushed by him, with only seven stopping to listen for more than a minute.
Produced and Directed by Judith Keenan in collaboration with interviewer Brigitte Waisberg of Annick Press. Shot by Aria Evans; Edited by Kerry Biskupski. Video Produced with the support of Canadian Heritage Canada Book Fund; Annick Press supported by Ontario Media Development Corporation.
