Well, miracles do happen overnight. Stories on Stage is rushing in with an event that will put you on the right path -- a marathon power read of the book, scheduled from 1 to 6 p.m. on October 28 in the lounge at Belmar's Laboratory of Art and Ideas, 404 S. Upham Street, in Lakewood. There, a host of voices, including Tony Garcia of El Centro Su Teatro, Lab director Adam Lerner, and CU-Denver's Mark Heckler and Gillian Silverman, will join audience members in a gratis cover-to-cover reading of the book, which is better than the movie. What a fine way to revisit a fine yarn.
Admission is free, and coffee and pastries will be served; call 303-934-1777 or go to Belmarlab.org for more details. -- Susan Froyd
