Beth Lyon Barnett’s new novel, JAZZ TOWN is the exciting, amazing and some-times heartbreaking story of the free-and-easy days of prohibition, crime, and the birth of the jazz age in Kansas City and how one Jewish family managed to assimilate into the culture. The names of real people may be recognized though of course the story is fiction.



Books available at book signing, at the American Jazz Museum and in bookform and eBooks at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.

  • Len Horwitz says:

    Jazz Town is a wonderful read. It is highly informative about Kansas City in the 20’s and 30’s, about the jazz scene, about the relationships between the well to do and their servants at that time, while focussing on one family in which father and son struggled to come to terms with their divergent interests and way of life. The dialogue brings these issues to life in a dramatic and poignant way.
