Marjorie Tesser’s New Book Available Now For Pre-Order; The Magic Feather

“Marjorie Tesser’s twenty-first century take on traditional myths and fairytales is charming, inventive, and full of bold ideas and images that turn the tables on the originals.  Well-written and sometimes comic but always serious, these are women for our times!” —Hettie Jones, author of Doing 70 and Becoming Hetty Jones

“Tesser takes readers into the untold stories of fairies, Dorothy in Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Red Riding Hood; the mothers, grandmothers, princesses, and queens each offer their own take never celebrated in Mother Goose and other gatherings of popular fables.  The Magic Feather takes a feminist perspective reminiscent of Anne Sexton’s Transformations and the contemporary anthology The Poets’ Grimm.” —Tara Betts, author of Arc & Hue

The book is available for pre-order now through the end of April,.Order The Magic Feather by Marjorie Tesser

WE PLAY: “Our speciality is good time folk rock with a jug band feel. Our original songs were about the challenges and funny moments of parenthood when our kids were growing up,” John Powers said. The POP Stars is known for “fun shows in which kids can dance along and parents can laugh,” he said. They often bring miniature tambourines and bells for youngsters in their audiences to play. The performances are appropriate for children from “infants to the age of 12.”

OUR SOUND: “We’ve got an upbeat, positive vibe. We play the music you might hear sitting on your porch.”

HISTORY: The POP Stars was born in 2005 when Powers and several other first-time dads performed in the Holliston Library singing songs he’d written about parenthood. “POP Stars became our support group,” he recalled.

WE MADE THE SCENE AT: The POP Stars performed at Holliston’s 2009 July 4th concert. They were the only male band invited to perform last year at Mamapalooza in New York City and played Father’s Day at Georges Island in Boston Harbor
