Galahad's Fool Reading

King Lear creators read from their new book!

When: Monday, August 27, 7:00 PM
Where: West Liberty Public Library
Cost: Donations welcome!

Remember the beautiful production of King Lear by Independent Eye from California presented at Owl Glass Puppetry Center in October 2015?  Well, Conrad Bishop and Elizabeth Fuller will be back in West Liberty, this time reading from their new novel GALAHAD'S FOOL, which stems out of Bishop & Fuller's fifty-year theatrical collaboration and explores what happens when time overtakes a partnership. In addition to the reading, they will talk about their life in the theatre and offer a short puppet performance.

A year after the death of his co-creator and soul mate Lainie, a grizzled puppeteer struggles to build a solo show. But what Albert Fisher intends as a lightweight spoof turns sharply personal, and he labors to birth a raw myth of love and loss. 

This event, especially for adults, is a collaboration between Eulenspiegel and the West Liberty Public Library. It will be held at the Library.

Exceptionally well written and unfailingly entertaining, Galahad's Fool is an engaging read from cover to cover and will prove to be an immediate  and enduringly popular addition to personal reading lists.
