Programs for All Ages Coming to Your Branch of Great River Regional Library
November will be a bumper month for programming at Great River Regional Library (GRRL) with more than 60 terrific programs already booked across the region. Here are a few details on just some of them.
Mixed Blood Theatre Presents: Theory of Mind – for all ages
The Mixed Blood Theatre is a professional, multi-racial company promoting cultural pluralism and individual equality. Their Theory of Mind is a sensitive yet unsentimental portrait of Bill, a young man with Asperger’s Syndrome. Bill’s outing with a young woman becomes a memorable, insightful look at the tugs, shifts and about-faces found on the autism spectrum.
Memory of Trees: a Daughter’s Story of a Family Farm – for all ages
Author Gayla Marty grew up on a family farm near Rush City, Minnesota. Memory of Trees: A Daughter’s Story of a Family Farm is her first book. She studied journalism and holds an M.F.A. in creative writing. She now lives and works in Minneapolis as an editor and writer with an interest in agriculture and natural history. She will visit several GRRL libraries, and anybody who grew up on a family farm will enjoy her stories of farm life.
Rumplestiltskin with GREAT Theatre – for children 3-8
Young children will love this interactive program based on the classic fairy tale Rumplestiltskin at many GRRL branches. Rumplestiltskin is the story of a gnome who spins gold for an imprisoned young woman in return for the promise of her first-born child. GREAT Theatre will present this classic tale in a new way, bringing it to life with audience interaction and participation.
