Potterfield Press welcomes all to the book launch party for Music in the Dark by Anthony Sherwood at The Company House in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

About the book: Music in The Dark is a compelling novel set in Prohibition-era Montreal when alcohol, drugs and jazz music ruled “Sin City.” Taylor Williams is a young black musician struggling to find fame in the Montreal Harlem District amid gangsters, racism and bootleggers. As a young boy, Taylor escaped a terrifying ordeal that haunts him as he pursues his dream of becoming a famous jazz musician.

About the author: Anthony Sherwood is an award-winning actor/director/producer/playwright who has worked extensively in film, television and stage for the past 35 years. He was born in Halifax and is a fifth-generation African Nova Scotian. Anthony was raised in Montreal and music has always played a strong role in his life. His aunt, Portia White, was Canada’s first famous black opera singer. His passion is telling stories from the African-Canadian experience. His accolades include the Gemini Award, Martin Luther King Achievement Award, Brampton Arts Acclaim Award, African-Canadian Achievement Award, Planet Africa Award and the Harry Jerome Award.
