Hey Bookies!!! You're invited to DBC's 1st Book-Meetup!
Be ready to network and discuss the reading of After the Dance...My Life with Marvin Gaye. After her seventeenth birthday in 1973, Janis Hunter met Marvin Gaye — the soulful prince of Motown. Despite a seventeen-year-age difference and Marvin’s marriage to the sister of Berry Gordy, Motown’s founder, the enchanted teenager and the emotionally volatile singer began a scorching relationship. Primarily silent since Marvin’s tragic death in 1984, Jan at last opens up, sharing the moving, fervently charged story of one of music history’s most fabled marriages. Illustrated with sixteen pages of black-and-white photos, After the Dance reveals what it’s like to be in love with a creative genius who transformed popular culture and whose artistry continues to be celebrated today.
