Artists: Children's Poetic Theatre Performances

Join us for a second year of poetry and community in the heart of Iowa, featuring local, regional and international talent with expanded opportunities to experience poetry!

Members from Story Theater Company will perform "Not Now, Navid" written by Roger Kleusner, Kay Marner and Sarvinder Naberhaus and illustrated by Tara Gartin as well as Tara Gartin's story, "Gus and His Bus". Both were adapted for the stage and directed by Kiersten Naberhaus.

There will be a short Q&A about the adaptation process and with actors after the performance.
