JONATHAN PORRETTA with MARCIE SILLMAN

 

A busy day for special debuts: here at the store we help launch a striking new book featuring Pacific Northwest Ballet dancer Jonathan Porretta, as chronicled by longtime KUOW, NPR, and print journalist Marcie Sillman, in what is her very first book, Out There: Jonathan Porretta’s Life in Dance (Seattle Scriptorium). Also, including photographs throughout by PNB soloist-turned-photographer Angela Sterling, this is a beautiful book about a boy growing up gay and lonely in smalltown New Jersey, all the way to and through being where he is today, a much-acclaimed principal dancer at PNB. This should be a lively time, talking the life lived so far, the dancing and artistry to come.
