About the Event
This remarkable event will include a Readers Theater performance in which all attending Garn authors – fiction and non-fiction writers — will participate. Both profound and funny, the Readers Theater will combine big idea fiction with the power of science to stand up for human rights in the struggle for the future that is taking place all over the world.
The Readers Theater will include literature, magical, quixotic and liberatory, sane and inane, world affairs, how we live and how we die, how we educate our children, how our political masters frame our lives, how we rebel and create our own frames, how we struggle for the future, struggle with existential risks that in past generations didn’t exist – or if they did we did not know about them.
We hope you will join us to cheer Garn authors on and then participate in the conversation with them that will follow about the sheer joyfulness of reading books and the angst we all feel as we make connections between these uncertain times and the books we read. Special thanks to Jerry Harste for the Hearts painting.
