Community Meeting Room
Adult Story Time presents Carson McCullers' short story, "A Tree, A Rock, A Cloud". An earnest young boy and a tired traveler engage in a poignant dialogue about the science of love. We'll perform every word of McCullers' text. After the performance, stay for refreshments and a discussion of the story, genre and author.
Want to read the story before the performance? You'll find the text here.
