The Mole on Lincoln's Cheek

Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 3:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

A reading of a radio play from 1941 that speaks to current issues.

     Written as part of The Free Company's  radio series on "the meaning of America" in 1941, The Mole on Lincoln's Cheek applies the freedom of speech to teaching.

     Read by community members, the play will be followed by discussion led by knowledgeable professionals who can speak to the question - who chooses our textbooks?

     To protect audience and participants from the uptick in local Covid cases, this event will be via Zoom.  

     To receive a login code for the event, make a modest ($3 to $18) ticket donation to AotL choosing a price level from the Buy Tickets button above. The price level need not correspond to your station in life. All are welcome at any price choice. The code to log in will be sent out about 24 hrs. in advance.

     The play has a running time of about 30 minutes. Discussion will be scheduled for another 30 minutes - or longer, if need be.

      Twice postponed, this event is the first of the Forgotten Voices Restored series. The second is If Graves Could Speak (2/5), the third is One-Third of a Nation (3/5).

      Read more about "Lincoln's Cheek" on page 4 of this week's Putnam Press (1/12/22).
