The Uppity Women of Shakespeare present:
Sunday, December 8
Vestiges of summer are still lurking around the corners of our memories as we gather for the Uppity Women’s holiday offering of A CHILDS CHRISTMAS IN WALES by Dylan Thomas and a CHRISTMAS MEMORY by Truman Capote. Come join us as we recreate the joy, love, laughter, and memory of the season through the literature and poetry of these two writers. One Christmas was so much like another that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve …or twelve days and twelve nights when I was six…..but it snowed and it snowed”

Cost: $10 Tickets available at the FiftyNorth front desk after November 5th
