Becoming Muhammad Ali, by James Patterson and Kwame Alexander
Stamped, by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi
Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush
Reading Across RI 2020 chose Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush, for it’s statewide read and Living Literature again created a presentation to supplement the reading experience for this signature program of the Rhode Island Center for the Book. Two performers will recreate the voices and events of this non fiction book in a 45 minute readers theatre experience. Rising documents the people, communities and ecosystems impacted by sea level rise, and is both a highly original work of lyric reportage and a haunting meditation on how to let go of the places we love.
