OUTDOOR LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with Rudyard Kipling

Wednesday, August 76:30—7:30 PMEvent LawnTewksbury Public Library300 Chandler Street, Tewksbury, MA, 01876

Actor Jackson Gillman will perform his one-man show, “Rudyard Kipling Revisited.” Rudyard Kipling was the most internationally celebrated author of his day, best known for The Jungle Book. The first four years of his marriage and fatherhood were spent in Vermont where he built his dream house, now preserved as a historical landmark.  These were very productive, happy, and troubled years for the young literary giant.  He was a guarded, private individual but this performance will provide an inside look at his experience in New England and some of the controversy surrounding this complex man.  The performance will also include a selection of Kipling’s poems and stories.
