The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, October 19th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until next summer. This month the group will read A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway.
The title comes from a line in the poem Harlem by Langston Hughes. The story tells of a black family’s experiences in a Chicago suburb as they attempt to “better” themselves insurance proceeds following the death of the father. The New York Drama Critics’ Circle named it the best play of 1959.
The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. For further information, contact the Blue Hill Library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248, or Donahue.firstname.lastname@example.org.
