Get Out and Play!

November 5, 2012 by Reader's Connection

Play is easy, once you think about it, even (and especially) for adults. This year’s Spirit & Place Festival, November 2 – 11, features the importance of play in all of its varieties and for all ages.

The Library has some titles that may help you get started:

The Games Bible: Over 300 Games - The Rules, the Gear, the Strategies

Unplugged Play: No Batteries. No Plugs. Pure Fun.

As part of the festival,  actress/ satirist extraordinaire Amy Sedaris will make a ticketed appearance at the Madame Walker Theatre Center on Thursday, November 8th, at 7:30 p.m.

Her books poke fun at TV’s most “perfectionistic” domestic divas:

Thanks to Susanne for the above.

I’ve enjoyed listening to some of the essays that have been written about play for the Spirit & Place blog, and read by their authors on WFYI. If you read author John Green’s piece about playing with his son by the river in Holliday Park, and drummer Dane Clark’s piece about playing at a concert following the September 11th attacks, you’ll see that “play” is being flexibly defined. Which seems appropriate.
