PHILLIP HOOSE

Maine author Phillip Hoose will be signing copies of his book “Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice.” Hoose won a National Book Award for the work, which tells the true story of Colvin, an African-American woman from Alabama who was arrested in 1955, when she was 15, for refusing to give her bus seat to a white woman. Her arrest came nine months before the more famous arrest of Rosa Parks. Hoose also will sing, backed by the PhilHarmonics.
