Actors  David Houston and Diana Heinlein will perform a one-hour dramatic reading from The Museum of Extraordinary Things at 1:30 PM on Thursday, March 12, 2015 in the Large Meeting Room. Scenes from Alice Hoffman’s spellbinding novel will be presented as “radio drama” with sound effects and music of early 20th century New York.

cover image of 'The Museum of Extraordinary Things'This selection for 2015’s Long Island Reads One Book is described as: "Mesmerizing and illuminating . . . the story of an electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York City during the volatile first decades of the 20th Century. With its colorful crowds of bootleggers, heiresses, thugs, and idealists, New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her trademark magic and masterful storytelling to unite her characters in a sizzling, tender, and moving story of self-discovery in tumultuous times."

David Houston has appeared in leading roles in scores of plays & musicals. He is a published and produced writer of fiction an non-fiction. His original plays have been seen in L.I. theaters, schools, and libraries. Diana Heinlein has acted many different leading and featured roles since the 1980s. She has masterfully portrayed both comic and serious characters.

This public program is funded by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library. Garden City residents will be given priority by presenting their Garden City Public Library cards at the program-room door. Non-residents will be accommodated on a space-available basis 10 minutes before showtime. No saved seats.
