Linda, Glen and the American Popular Song Society,

I am so excited to see all of you in Feb and to hear the amazing James Gavin and Will Friedwald talk about the Great Miss Peggy Lee!

During Covid, Carter Inskeep the writer/director of Rita Hayworth The Heat Is On! and I have reworded the book of Rita Hayworth The Heat Is On! to include The Me Too Movement, Female Empowerment and of course The Great American Songbook. We\'ve gotten rave reviews and are extended at Don\'t Tell Mama until June 23 of 2022.

I\'d love to present at one of the future APSS presentations.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Feb!
Best,
Quinn

Great website! I wish I\'d tuned in to these events years ago. I must join once I\'m back in the USA -- and maybe present on my upcoming book (or on some other research), My Melancholy Baby: The First Ballads of the Great American Songbook, 1902-1913.

I have enjoyed the shows that are presented once a month - I have been to a few of them - and Linda Burns is a good host of the programs!

I write this in the midst of a meeting of the American Popular Song Society, also known as the New York Sheet Music Society, the New York Sheet Metal Society, and the New York Sheep Meadow Society. The June 13 meeting is the third and final session of the 2019-2020 Season to be held virtually, in response to the Covid-19 Virus Pandemic.

Thanks to the efforts of President Linda Amiel Burns, Vice President Sandi Durell, and Board members Glen Charlow and Will Friedwald, we\'ve been able to complete the season brilliantly through an internet application called ZOOM.

Those who have been \"attending\" recent programs from the comfort of their living rooms, would not have missed anything, other than a trip to the Green Room 42. Other than the absence of hugs, kisses, handshakes, and free goodies, all the ingredients of a good show were present: the producer, the host presenter, the performers, the clips,and the audience, albeit with muted mics until the Q & A.

It\'s too soon to know what programs the Board will come up with for the 2020-2021 season, which begins on October 10, but we can be certain it will be top drawer. As for the Pandemic, there\'s far too much uncertainty to make an educated guess about how things will unfold, but we\'re absolutely certain that our organization will continue to thrive
