I just received a call from Jason Richards, the artistic director for Festival Theatre in St.Croix Falls. Festival began as an Equity company almost 30 years ago and I did an article (maybe two) on the new enterprise and on Carrie Claussen Smith, one of the founders. Jason called in response to an idea: reading some of my short stories as a fund raiser for Festival. I’d include LaMoine MacLaughlin reading his poetry–a single voice can become wearisome. Our books would be available for purchase. Festival has a mailing list and a need; here’s something I can do that can take the place of money I don’t have to help them.
It sounds like we’ll be doing this on a Friday night sometime in January, 2018. I’ll let you know!
