Award-winning authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan tell the story behind the scenes of the collaboration that created Appalachian Spring, from its inception through the score's composition to Martha's intense rehearsal process. The authors' collaborator is two-time Sibert Honor winner Brian Floca, whose vivid watercolors bring both the process and the performance to life.
