3/31 A Thurber Carnival
This Tuesday, MARCH 31st, we will be reading A THURBER CARNIVAL by James Thurber.
A THURBER CARNIVAL is a revue by James Thurber, adapted by the author from his stories, cartoons and casuals, nearly all of which originally appeared in The New Yorker. Winner of a special Tony Award and first performed in New York by Tom Ewell, Peggy Cass, Paul Ford and Alice Ghostley, these sketches of humorous scenes from American life include some of Thurber’s most celebrated and insightful satires: “The Night the Bed Fell,” “Gentlemen Shoppers,” “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and the unforgettable “File and Forget” in which Thurber recounts his famous correspondence with various publishers who ship him books which he doesn’t want and never ordered.
