Elyzabeth Gregory at The NewSouth Bookstore Saturday, June 8 at 3pm!

June 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us at The NewSouth Bookstore for a special program arranged in partnership with the Alabama Shakespeare Festival (ASF): Playwright Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder will talk about her semi autobiographical Southern story of love, loss and restoration. When Libby returns to her father’s home, she learns that he’s left her with the remains of an old Rolls Royce Phantom, which she names Zelda, and a surprising discovery to be made about his life. The talented playwright, a 2024 Tennessee Arts Commission Fellow with a dozen plays to her name, will share insights about the writing of “Zelda in the Backyard” and her inspirations for it. Thanks to ASF for co-hosting!
