Playwright Rachel Rubin Ladutke will visit the East Brunswick Public Library at 7 p.m., Monday, Dec. 3, to discuss the 100th anniversary of the historic and occasionally violent "Bread & Roses" strike by textile workers in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
An award-winning NJ playwright, Ladutke will give a historical overview of the strike, including its surprising resolution, and how it inspired her to write a play and subsequent musical, Belles of the Mill. Her multimedia presentation will be accompanied by period photos and songs from the musical. This free event is sponsored by The Friends of The Library and the Arts Commission
