Lawrence John Elston, a white male author in his 60s famous for writing children’s books celebrating black children, is now dying and looking to appoint a head of his library and foundation. Libby is a Black female doctoral student desperate to convince Elston to give her that job. They jockey for power over not only Elston’s literary legacy, but also his life story. One of them wins, but everyone winds up wounded by a battle that started long before they met.
How it works: First you must register for the reading here, then you will be sent a link to a ZOOM webinar the morning of the performance via email.
