â€˜Spoon River Anthologyâ€™
Edgar Lee Mastersâ€™ â€œSpoon River Anthologyâ€ will be performed at 3 p.m. Sunday at Oak Hill Cemetery in Lewistown.
Masters grew up in Petersburg and Lewistown, graduated from Lewistown High School and attended Knox College before moving to Chicago to practice law.
“Spoon River Anthology” unfolds through inscriptions on the townsfolk’s tombstones. The sometimes-contradictory perspectives weave a complete portrait of small town life.
In case of foul weather, the event will be held at the Lewistown United Methodist Church.
