Ann Patchett and other writers pay tribute to Eudora Welty (1909-2001), sharing thoughts on her work and introducing actors to read some of her lesser-known gems. During her lifetime, most of which she spent in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi, Welty published such beloved stories as “Why I Live at the P.O.” and “The Petrified Man” in collections including A Curtain of Green, _The Wide Net _and The Golden Apples. She won the Pulitzer Prize for her 1972 novel The Optimist’s Daughter. “I try,” Eudora Welty writes, “to enter the mind, heart, and skin of a human being who is not myself. Whether this happens to be a man or a woman, old or young, with skin black or white, the primary challenge lies in making the jump itself. It is the act of a writer’s imagination I set most high.” Marian Seldes, Sloane Shelton and Kathryn Markey will perform “Lily Daw and the Three Ladies,” “The Key” and “A Piece of News.”
