Free Talk about at Main Library

FREE Talk About
Nobel and Pulitzer-winning
Playwright Eugene O'Neill
at the
San Leandro Main Library, Karp Room
Thursday, July 19 at 7pm

Join us for the first of three events in the San Leandro Reads "Long Day's Journey into Night" summer program.

Professor Dan Cawthon, longtime board member of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation, Tao House will discuss the events of O'Neill's tortured life and how they inspired the brilliant masterworks that went on to transform the American theater in the 20th century.

This free event "sets the stage" for the other two San Leandro Reads events this summer: 1) A free showing of the movie "Long Days Journey into Night" on Wednesday August 15 at 5:30 pm; 2) An all-day field trip to Tao House, O'Neill's beautiful home in Danville on Saturday, September 8 at 8:30. (Space is limited and registration required.)

This free talk is open to all and refreshments will be served. No tickets necessary.

For more information, call (510)577-3971.
