Program Description

Event Details

Louis Armstrong was one of the most famous and influential musicians of all time, changing the course of music with his innovations as a trumpeter and vocalist. Yet while he toured all over the world throughout the course of his illustrious career, he called Corona, Queens home for the last 28 years of his life. Join GRAMMY-winning author and historian Ricky Riccardi as he discusses Armstrong’s historic career, shares rare footage, and tells the story of Louis and Lucille’s love affair with Queens, which now serves as home for both the Louis Armstrong House Museum and the brand new Louis Armstrong Center.  (Sponsored by the Friends of the Library)
