CHAUTAUQUA SERIES

June 1, 2007

During the week of June 18th you may see 5th through 8th graders flitting through the library in pursuit of the stories and characters of Baldwin City’s past as part of the Baldwin City Chautauqua. Stop by to see the library display featuring the four historical characters (and I do mean characters) who will be portrayed in the big tent during the week of June 18th: Featured are William Allen White, Carry Nation, John R. Brinkley, and Langston Hughes.

The Youth Chautauqua Camp will work under the guidance of Joyce Thierer and Ann Birney (Ride into History) to delve into the life of one of the characters from Baldwin City’s past, develop a script and costume, get a little actor coaching, and, finally, on Friday evening, June 22nd they will present the compelling stories of “their” characters under the big tent at the corner of 6th and Grove for the public. The camp runs from 2:00 to 5:00, Monday June 18 through Friday June 22nd.

If you know of any young people who would enjoy participating in this camp or if you know an adult who would like to work with these young people, contact Tony Brown (abrown@bakeru.edu). Participation is free, but registration is required.
