Perrot Library welcomes local author Leslee Asch for a virtual discussion of her latest book, Out of the Shadows: The Henson Festivals and Their Impact on Contemporary Puppet Theater. Asch worked from Jim Henson and The Jim Henson Company for over twenty years. Many books and thousands of pages have been written about the life and work of the beloved American icon– Jim Henson. Out of the Shadows is the first to focus solely on his love of– and impact on– puppetry as a vital contemporary art form, an important and previously unexplored aspect of the Henson legacy.
