Patricia Parr's book launch

On December 1st, 2016, Prism hosted the official launch of Patricia Parr's new book, "Above Parr: Memoir of a Child Prodigy." Patricia read several passages from her memoir to a packed room in Yorkville. The book is now available at Ben McNally's Bookstore, Remenyi's House of Music, Roy Thompson Hall Bookstore, and at the illustrious Arts and Letters Club at the corner of Yonge and Elm. Here are a few pictures from the event:
