Designer of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ exhibit gives insight
THE VETERAN’S SPOUSE PROJECT: May 10 and 11, at 7:30 p.m, CSU’s Riverside Theatre Complex, 6 W. 10th St. Written by Amy Uptgraft and Gregory Stieber, “I Will Wait” is a performance about sending a loved-one to war told through drama and music.
WILD RUMPUS: The Chattahoochee Valley Libraries welcomes all Wild Things young and old to the roar-iest, stomp-iest, most beastly celebration ever — the Wild Rumpus! This grand party for the entire community will help celebrate the ongoing exhibit of original Maurice Sendak drawings “Maurice Sendak: 50 Years – 50 Works – 50 Reasons” now on display at the Columbus Public Library. The event also serves as the start of the CVL’s Summer Reading Challenge. Attendees will be able to earn their first summer reading completion, giving them the chance to win some prizes during the summer. Creatures of all ages will have games of skill and chance, entertainment, real wild things to see and much more, including the Wild Rumpus itself, a noise-making hullaballoo that will echo throughout the Columbus Public Library. The free event May 11 at the Columbus Public Library, 3000 Macon Road, runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to wear family-friendly Wild Things costumes or to come and make their own decorations and noisemakers.
