It Can’t Happen Here: Play Reading and Discussion
Monday, May 14th, 2018, 7pm
“The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library rolls out its Untold Stories series each May for Labor History Month. The series focuses on workers’ rights, with programs that challenge audiences to question what we know of labor history, while lifting up workers’ efforts to organize, seek respect and confront issues of safety and discrimination over the last century. In an adaptation of the 1936 play based on Sinclair Lewis’s novel read by local actors, a small-town news editor struggles with the election of a fascist demagogue to the U.S. presidency. The Twin Cities Labor Chorus will open the evening with a performance.”
