"8"—a new play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar)—demystifies the debate around marriage equality by chronicling the landmark trial of Perry v. Schwarzenegger. Produced by the Library Foundation, learn about the historical context of marriage from expert testimony in this free staged reading held in the Library. See the human cost of discrimination. Using the actual court transcripts from the landmark federal trial of California's Prop. 8 and first-hand interviews, "8" shows both sides of the debate in a moving 90-minute play. Join us for a reception before and after the reading. Call Paula at 582-2426 for free reserved tickets.
