3:30pm Book presentation and signing: Orla’s Canvas, by Mary Donnarumma Sharnick [I AM Books, 189 North St, Boston]
Narrated by eleven-year-old Orla Gwen Gleason, Orla’s Canvas opens on Easter Sunday, in St. Suplice, Louisiana, a “misspelled town” north of New Orleans, and traces Orla’s dawning realization that all is not as it seems in her personal life or in the life of her community. The death of St. Suplice’s doyenne, Mrs. Bellefleur Dubois Castleberry, for whom Orla’s mother keeps house, reveals Orla’s true paternity, shatters her trust in her beloved mother, and exposes her to the harsh realities of class and race in the Civil Rights-era South.

3:00pm NEMPAC Shakespeare Workshop, Richard II Cafe Paradiso, Hanover Street North End
*Shakespeare Workshop with Doug Bowen-Flynn at Cafe Paradiso! What does it mean to be a king? Does a bad monarch still retain the right to rule? Who is entitled to dethrone him? What are the consequences to the people? What are the long-term implications of misrule and political upheaval? All of these issues, as relevant today as they were four hundred years ago.
