Bunheads: Misty Copeland in Conversation with Vanity Fair’s Radhika Jones

Misty Copeland and Radhika Jones

Ballet star and New York Times bestselling author Misty Copeland made history when she became the first African American female principal dancer with one of the premier dance companies in the world, American Ballet Theatre.

Now one of the world’s most influential dancers, Copeland joins us to talk with Vanity Fair editor in chief Radhika Jones about her new children’s book Bunheads, scheduled for release this fall. The book is the first in a new series of children’s picture books by Copeland, inspired by her early experience in dance. Bunheads tells the story of a young Misty, who discovers her love of dance through the classic ballet Coppélia, and along the way discovers something more—her own courage. Gather your daughters and sons and don’t miss this story of inspiration and perseverance from one of the most trailblazing artists of our time.

Attendees can pre-order the book (out on 9/29) or order it after the event for shipping or in-store pickup from Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn.
