Palm Beach Dramaworks is delighted to participate in Read Together Palm Beach County, the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County’s “one book, one community” campaign in which adults throughout the area read the same book at the same time. The 2017 selection is
A Man Called Ove
, Fredrik Backman’s
New York Times
bestseller that explores themes of youth, aging, reconciliation, and redemption. On Tuesday, November 14, PBD will present excerpts from the book in the form of a staged reading featuring professional actors, followed by a discussion led by PBD Director of Education and Community Engagement Gary Cadwallader. The event takes place at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in Read Together Palm Beach County,” said PBD Managing Director Sue Ellen Beryl. “We’ve done it twice before, and it’s always been a joy. It’s wonderful to see people coming together to enjoy and really delve into a book. And for those of us at PBD, it’s a great way of engaging with the community.”
The hour-long program begins at 7pm; doors open at 6:30pm. A $5 donation for a general admission ticket may be purchased through the Literacy Coalition. Seats are limited and must be reserved in advance at www. LiteracyPBC.org.
