André Benito Mountain is an activist and motivational speaker who is best known for his work with equity and integrating the arts and culture into public education. He challenges educators and leaders to reimagine schools as places that foster creativity in teachers and scholars.

From the nuances of the Covid-19 pandemic to the intersections of education, race, and socio-economic status– Mountain covers a wide variety of relevant topics to today’s public education system & how to make it better.

IN THE HEIGHTS Virtual Book Launch with The Book Tavern

Lights up on Washington Heights!

Before Hamilton became a global phenomenon, before Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a little show called In the Heights shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and big, bilingual heart. In the new book “In the Heights: Finding Home,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter tell the story of the show’s humble beginnings, from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash (and soon-to-be feature film!) that created an unbreakable community and a new kind of family for everyone involved.

Join Miranda, Hudes, and McCarter for a very special In the Heights Virtual Book Launch on  Zoom. Sure to be an unforgettable conversation on creativity, community, and finding home, this is your chance to hear directly from the creative team behind the timeless story of how one neighborhood—Washington Heights—can speak to the world.

Your ticket includes admission to this exclusive event, a hardcover copy of In the Heights: Finding Home ($40 retail price), as well as sales tax, shipping, and handling (if applicable).

Please contact The Book Tavern with any questions. We can’t wait to see you there!

Tickets are available HERE!
