The Santa Barbara Public Library and Ensemble Theatre Company invite you to our virtual Theatre Book Club.
The discussion will center on Christopher Demos-Brown's play AMERICAN SON. The play, which was to have its West Coast premiere this past April at ETC's The New Vic, is a gripping look at the intersection of racial dynamics and the police. In the middle of the night, the parents of a Black teenager anxiously await news of their son, who may have been picked up by the police.
The Book Club will be hosted by the Santa Barbara Public Library. The discussion will be moderated by Jonathan Fox, artistic director of ETC, and James Joyce, Santa Barbara resident and founder of "Coffee With A Black Guy," which holds community conversations about racial dynamics.
