“A Holiday Sampler” Tuesday, December 8, 2020, 6-6:45pm

Living Literature will offer a live ZOOM presentation of “A Holiday Sampler,” a 40 minute readers theater style of stories, poems and essays celebrating the spirit and practices of Christmas on Tuesday, December 8 at 6 pm.  This off-beat, lighthearted look at the most indelible of holidays includes such authors as Ogden Nash, Grace Paley, A. A. Milne, Mary Oliver, Maya Angelou, Pearl S. Buck, and Leo Tolstoy among others.

It will be performed by husband & wife team, Trinity Rep regular, Anne Scurria and Living Literature Artistic Director, Barry Press, in association with Ashaway Free Library.  If you want the link to the live ZOOM presentation, you may click ZOOM presentation to go to our Facebook page, or contact Heather Field, Director of Ashaway Library at director@ashawaylibrary.org, or see the Zoom link information below.
