Description: The Lied Center is thrilled to present and serve as the lead commissioner of an exciting new musical, for young audiences and adults alike, with an important story to tell. A story of relationships, grit, betrayal, ingenuity, joy and, above all, humanity—NORTH The Musical will make its world premiere on the Lied Center stage. Created by musician, writer and arts educator Ashli St. Armant, NORTH follows the journey of a precocious teenage boy and his young mother as they escape the Deep South and travel North through the Underground Railroad seeking freedom. Their route through the Louisiana bayous, the bustling city of New Orleans, and the young town of Lawrence, Kansas introduces the characters and the audience to the diverse, multifaceted lives of Black Americans during this time period. Set in the 1850s, NORTH is based on actual accounts of slave escapes through the Underground Railroad network as well as Ms. St. Armant’s personal family history of overcoming slavery in Louisiana. While acknowledging the realities of slavery, the book and original musical compositions bring out the full experience of freedom-seekers: optimism, bravery, playfulness, wonder, suspense and mystery. Join us for the world premiere! Visit for more information or call 785-864-2787. Submitted by: Betsy Ostrander Lied Center of Kansas

Description: RSVP to meet your next favorite book! October 26, 7 p.m., sales representatives from the largest publisher in America, Penguin Random House, will be coming to the Raven to meet our community and chat about the best books of the season—from their favorite fall releases to the hot books to keep an eye on for the holiday season, they're giving our customers in the inside scoop. These industry experts get to read outstanding titles months before their release dates, and they're not simply bringing the books that they know will sell well. They're traveling to Lawrence to tell you about the books close to their hearts, ones that they'll be keeping on their shelves for years to come! This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the publishing industry and the importance of pre-order books; how the Raven decides what titles will be on our shelves; and to make sure you're not empty-handed this holiday shopping season! All events at the Raven require a mask and proof of vaccination for entry. Thank you! Note: This is a free, ticketed event. Free tickets are available here: Submitted by: Wulfe Wulfemeyer Raven Book Store
