Library Live at Labyrinth: Susan Robeson on Grandpa Stops a War

March16 at Labyrinth Books in Princeton, New Jersey


The author, granddaughter of singer, actor, social-justice activist and lawyer Paul Robeson, reads from and answers questions about her book. Based on a true story of Paul Robeson’s visit to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War, the book tells how Robeson asked the soldiers to set up speakers facing the fighters on both sides of the battle field and proceeded to sing. The book features illustrations by Rod Brown.

Co-sponsored by the library, Labyrinth Books and The Robeson House of Princeton.
