We are pleased to present an encore performance of Jordan Is So Chilly: An Encounter With Lillian Smith, a one-woman show adapted, and performed by local actor Brenda Bynum. The text of Jordan Is So Chilly is drawn completely from Lillian Smith’s writings and interviews. Much of the material has never been published and is collected at the Hargrett Rare Books and Manuscript Library at the University of Georgia. Bynum performed this piece at the Decatur Library, the Decatur Book Festival before the Lillian Smith Book Award ceremony, and throughout the state of Georgia due to the generous support of the Georgia Humanities Council. FREE TICKETS REQUIRED. Due to the theatrical nature of this performance, LATE ARRIVALS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED ENTRY.
