“Enjoy the chance to hear the author give a book reading from the novel she had first begun thirty years ago! Published earlier this year, “Notes from the Rock-Chair” is a dramatic and compelling love story with substantial content in the areas of music and dance. The book is filled with mystery, humor, heartbreak, nostalgia, and … poetry! You’ll also get a glimpse behind the scenes: hear how the idea for the novel came about, its connection to local settings, and Jacky’s wish to be able to give new life – in a fictional way – to her own experiences in the performing arts.
Author Bio: Jacky Ankeles has always been devoted to the arts- music, dance, theatre. She was a performing member of the Boston Ballet Company, and is an accomplished Classical pianist. In 1988, she began a 30-year career in broadcasting, working at WBOQ 104.9 and WNBP 106.1. Her versatility as an announcer in Classical, Jazz, and Classic Rock formats, and her friendly on-air manner made her one of the most recognized voices on local radio.”
