Live: Mabel Stanley and the Town That Was Built All Wrong - Join Thomas Karr, head of our Theatre Management and Arts Administration programs, for a live reading of his children's book, "Mabel Stanley and the Town That Was Built All Wrong". 

Thomas wrote and illustrated "Mabel Stanley" for the children in his family to provide them with a children's story that doesn't follow traditional gender stereotypes.
