One of the really fun parts of the job is working with our colleagues over at the New Haven Free Public Library to put together the reading list for our upcoming production. We talk to them a bit about the themes for each show – a subject they’ve already given a lot of consideration – and they come back with a list of amazing titles, touching all different aspects of the particular play on our stage.
In this case, August Wilson’s Fences touches on a wide array of subjects – family, race, baseball – making the books in the microbranch assembled by NHFPL librarian Sandra Hernandez-Laguna all the more fascinating. Come check them out – all you need is a valid Connecticut library card. Click on the links to get a bit of information about each title.
