Minnesotan Kevin Kling has been described as “part funny guy, part poet and playwright, part wise man,” so your mom might want to come along for the fun! He is known for his books "Big Little Mother" and "Big Little Brother", his many children's plays like "Lily's Purple Plastic Purse" and stage shows such as “Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log.” Your folks might recognize him from his popular commentaries on National Public Radio’s "All Things Considered". They can even look him up at www.kevinkling.com.
Kling's visit is being made possible by the Central College Theatre Department, Marion County Community Foundation, Union Street Players, Geisler Writer's Reading, Campus Life Committee, Pella Shakespeare Company, the Central College Fishing Club, Intercultural Life, and the Friends of Pella Public Library. His residency at Central College precedes the theatre department’s production of one of Kling’s works, “The Ice Fishing Play” (Feb 26-Mar2).
