Bud’s journey sets him on the trail of a jazz band known as Herman E. Calloway and the Dusky Devastators of the Depression.

A flier for one of Calloway’s shows leads Bud to Grand Rapids and Calloway, the man he believes to be his father. Bud gets into all sorts of trouble along the way and develops his own “Rules and Things” to help him navigate a world of confusing expectations.

Rich with adventure and humor, Bud, Not Buddy is a coming-of-age tale for young and old alike. The novel also won the Coretta Scott King Award.

Recommended for ages 8+

Adapted by Reginald André Jackson
From the novel by Christopher Paul Curtis
Directed by Dawn M. Simmons
