<i>Methland</i> & <i>Luna Gale</i>

Cover of the non-fiction book Methland and author Nick Reding

As a way to engage and prepare our audience, we’ve chosen Methland as our first Goodman Book Club selection. The book deals with many of the issues faced by the characters in Rebecca Gilman's newest play, Luna Gale, starting performances here on January 18. I’ll be blogging my thoughts and hope that you will share your comments on the book and Luna Gale here as well.
