A 50-minute dramatization of this year’s Reading Across Rhode Island (RARI) pick: The Wright Brothers by David McCullough.

Living Literature is a collective of RI-based performing artists who have been celebrating the written word through readers-theatre style performances of non-dramatic literature since its inception in January 1996.  This is Living Literature’s seventh year creating programs for Reading Across Rhode Island, the signature program of Rhode Island Center for the Book at the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. Living Literature’s readers-theatre style performance of David McCullough’s The Wright Brothers is intended for both audiences who have and have not read the book.

Free and open to all. No registration required.
