Matapa Music & Arts Organization and Bryan Prince Bookseller are pleased to present an evening of music and memories on Family Day.

This presentation is part of Matapa's Roots en Route Festival celebrating Black History Month.

In 1967, John Ellison wrote the song, (She's) Some Kind of Wonderful, which would go on to become one of the most famous songs in the history of popular music. In his new autobiography, "Some Kind of Wonderful: The John Ellison Story", John gives readers a unique and detailed glimpse into a life of tremendous hardship, violent racism and musical success.

The evening will feature a reading by John Ellison & co-author, Jon Wells. Followed by a musical performance by John Ellison.

Free admission, everyone welcome.
