Join readers across the nation in bringing Sinclair Lewis' "It Can't Happen Here" to the Berkeley Public Library. Lewis' darkly satirical play, written in 1936 for the National Theater Project, imagines the rise of fascism in America, race riots, huge income gaps between rich and poor, the stigmatizing of immigrants, global terror and a right-wing extremist running for President.

Hey grown-ups, join other adults who like to color. It's a time for calm, with genial and peaceful encounters (or companionable silence) and snacks. It's relaxing, fun, and no artistic ability is required. Find us in the 4th floor Story Room.
Members of the library's Playreaders group will present short scenes, all written by the Playreaders themselves. Stay and congratulate the writers/actors at the reception after the performance.
The second production in our readers theater series of Southern Gothic Voices is back by popular demand. If you enjoyed the acclaimed presentation of William Faulkner's "A Rose For Emily," you definitely won't want to miss Carson McCullers' "A Tree, A Rock, A Cloud."
