Former UI Director of the Center for New Performing Arts Martha Ann Letterman will read from Scarlet Cinders. The novel explores the 1950s and 60s in Washington, DC and Atlantic City, from the point of view of a young girl at a pivotal time of American cultural change. A historic family tourist house is torn down to make way for a modern apartment building, a family beach resort is transformed into a gambling playground, and her parents go from a life of social involvement and high fashion to one of isolation. Scarlet Cinders, originally developed as a series of vignettes for performance, is a novel the three acts filled with joy, sadness, and humor.
