Radio Drama – This Friday Night!

“There’s no end in sight . . . no hope.  I get sick to the very soul of me when I look upon the faces of our young people.  They’ve been dispossessed—cheated out of their chance.”  Thus starts The National Youth Administration:  A Radio Drama by Herb Meadow.  Written in 1937, this is a series of vignettes embodying the effects of the Great Depression on youth (roughly 15-25 yrs. old), and the various interventions of the National Youth Administration (part of the Works Progress Administration):  Story mixed with History in ways that seem eerily current. 

We hope you’ll join us for a live recording, this Friday, May 15th at 8:00 pm CST.  To obtain your “ticket” (the Zoom Meeting link and password), simply email Kathy Privatt at kathy.privatt@lawrence.edu.
