Presented by the Peconic Landing Lifetime Learning Speakers’ Bureau and co-sponsored by the Friends of Floyd Memorial Library.

What better a way to celebrate Harlem Renaissance writer Langston Hughes — affectionately known as Shakespeare in Harlem — than a one-person dramatic rendition of Langston Hughes; poems and short stories.  Actor David Mills’ performance takes the audience on an odyssey spanning five decades oof Hughes’ writings—from the 1920’s through the 1960’s. Mr. Mills’ performance highlights Hughes’ unending love for Harlem—with its foibles and fantasies, its beauty and brutality.
