My buddy Spuds just finished this cool video to promote this effort to get people to buy the new book The Ambassador of Lindy Hop on May 26. Frankie Manning is a legendary, Tony-award winning swing dancer who pioneered this unique American artform. Frankie’s autobiography, The Ambassador of Lindy Hop, co-written by Cynthia Millman, is hitting the shelves soon. This May 26 is Frankie Manning’s 93rd Birthday, believe it or not!
To celebrate, we are asking people everywhere to go to Amazon.com and purchase his book. We believe we can make The Ambassador of Lindy Hop a best-seller for the day. To make it even sweeter, we are going to offer an amazing “Goodie Bag” of swing stuff for people who buy the book on that day, including exclusive music downloads, discounts at various swing schools and venues, and other neat stuff.
