A board game that became a stage play; tiny poetry books; and a peek at Columbia's 2022 One Read

On this week's eclectic art tour, Diana Moxon has conversations that span from New York City to Kansas City with a stopover in Columbia. There's a board game that became a stage play, by way of a movie and a musical, that is taking to the stage at the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre and Diana chats with its director, award-winning actor and director, John Treacy Egan; there's a visit with Missouri's 6th Poet Laureate, Maryfrances Wagner and a peek at her tiny books project, and how a rich Italian-American heritage shaped her as a poet; and Diana checks in with Daniel Boone Regional Library's Lauren Williams for an advance peek at Columbia’s 2022 One Read book, 'The Big Door Prize' by M.O. Walsh, and the series of accompanying literary and art events that will roll out this September. Opening and closing musical credits to guitarist Yasmin Williams (www.yasminwilliamsmusic.com)
