Girls on the Roof

Mary Swander, Iowa’s current Poet Laureate, will present “The Girls on The Roof,” a Mississippi flood narrative, on Friday evening, November 6 at 6:00 pm, with assistance from the Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre.  In this one-hour adult (not for children) production, Swander reads poems from her new book while puppeteer Monica Leo brings the scenes alive through the use of hand, rod, and shadow puppets. This show, filled with old time music, romance, intrigue, humor, folklore, and the flora and fauna of the Mississippi River basin, will dazzle the ear with its poetic rhythms, and delight the eye with its likenesses of an unforgettable cast of characters.  This performance is open to the public at no charge. Refreshments will be served. Funded by The Iowa Arts Council, the Kathryn Ray Fund, and the Friends of the Cedar Falls Public Library.
