Phyllis Newman Set for Books of Wonder Appearance for What's New At The Zoo?

Tony Award-winning actress Phyllis Newman and illustrator Travis Foster will participate in a book signing, reading, and performance in conjunction with the recently published children's book from Blue Apple Books, What's New At The Zoo? The event will be held at Books of Wonder on Sunday, November 6 from Noon to 2pm.

The book features the lyrics to the song "What's New At The Zoo?" from the Betty Comden/Adolph Green musical, Do Re Mi. Both song and book tell the tale of an overcrowded zoo and the amazingly witty animals who want OUT! Illustrations are by Foster.

Newman, who was married to Green, won a 1962 Tony Award for Subways Are for Sleeping, and also received a special 2009 Tony.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative.
