I Can Hear the Sun

Thursday November 21, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event is intended for youth (grade 4 and up), teens and adults.

Explore selected readings from Wild Swan Theater's newest "play-in progress" for upper elementary and middle school audiences inspired by award-winning children's book author Patricia Polacco. Your feedback will help us shape this production premiering in 2014.

The adaptation of the book to the stage is being done jointly by local poet, journalist, editor Jennifer Burd, and Laszlo Slomovits (of the children's musical duo Gemini) who is also writing music for the play.

In this modern myth, discover the story of Fondo, a young, homeless boy who begins to find his place in the world as he tends a group of wild geese in a city park.
