Frankie Manning

I am sorry to note that my friend, the great and legendary lindy-hopper Frankie Manning died yesterday at 94 years of age.  Frankie was the hero of the boy in my book "Happy Feet," and he turned the gallery into a dance hall at the book's publication party. You can see pictures here.

Abraham Joshua Heschel School

I had a great time meeting the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at the Abraham Joshua Heschel School in NYC last week, and thanks to all the families who showed up at my Anti-Defamation League Next Generation Philanthropy lecture.
