No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks

Join us for the remount of No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks! Written by Chicago poets Eve L. Ewing and Nate Marshall, No Blue Memories is a uniquely staged retelling of Brooks’s life using simple, illuminative paper-cut puppetry by Manual Cinema set to music composed by Jamila Woods and Ayanna Woods. 

Public performances for the show will take place at Harold Washington Library on Tuesday, May 16 and Thursday, May 18 at 6PM. 

This event is free. Masking is strongly recommended.
