S. Racine Ave.
Meet author Christopher Paul Curtis at performances of the play based on his book. When Kenny’s older brother starts getting into too much trouble in Michigan, it’s decided that he needs to pay a visit to Grandma Sands in Birmingham, Ala. to straighten him out. The whole family—Momma, Dad, Byron, Kenny and Joetta—sets out on a wild cross-country journey in the family car, the “Brown Bomber.” When they make it to Birmingham, however, they find much more than they bargained for. The powerful story reminds us that during times of crisis, hope reveals itself in the forms of family and friendships; learning, growing, and evolving. Good for ages 9 and up.
