Hood River County Library presents staged readings from Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town,” Sunday, April 21 from 2-4.
The reading will take place upstairs in the atrium.
Spend an afternoon in “Our Town” as Lynda Dallman, of Plays for Non-Profits, directs Gorge-area actors in staged readings from Wilder’s classic play about daily life, love and marriage, death and eternity.
The staged reading cast includes several actors from the original 2006 production.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
For more information call the library at 541-386-2535 or visit www.hoodriver. plinkit.org.
“This is part of the library’s ongoing centennial celebration, and gives people a feeling for what was it like back in the period of 1910-13,” said Library Director Buzzy Nielsen.
He noted that recent research has confirmed that a 1913 time capsule was placed under the library cornerstone when the Carnegie Building was completed that year. It contains a 1913 Woman’s Club yearbook, 1913 penny and copies of the Hood River News, Glacier and Oregonian, along with a photograph of the late Ruth (McClain) Guppy, then the youngest child of any Woman’s Club member, who would later become a longtime Hood River News columnist and an accomplished local historian.
