Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S. Fifth Ave

Interweaving past and present, private anecdote and public record, Ann Arbor author Leslie Stainton's new book Staging Ground captures the history of one of America’s oldest and most ghosted theaters—the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, Pennsylvania—and recounts the story of a nation’s tumultuous struggle to invent itself. This event features a short reading by Stainton followed by a conversation Jm Leija (UMS), Martin Walsh (actor and U-M instructor) and Leigh Woods (actor and U-M theater professor).
