Picnic Book Group

William Inge, another native of Kansas, wrote Picnic in 1953 drawing on his experiences growing up in Independence, Kansas. Picnic is the story of a beautiful girl from the wrong side of the tracks who seems destined to marry one man until a sexy drifter comes to town. Within a twenty-four hour period she makes a decision about how she will spend her life.

It is not too late to sign up for the book group on Thursday, April 5 at 6:30. Pick up a copy of the play at the front desk, read it and come prepared to discuss it.
