SLA Georgia Chapter Visits Center for Puppetry Arts

 

By Ian Franklin

On Saturday, April 12th, the Georgia Chapter members visited the Center for Puppetry Arts and its library. The day began with the Center’s puppet production of Charlotte’s Web, based on the beloved children’s book by E.B. White. After the performance, members visited museum exhibits. After the exhibits, attendees were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the Center, which included the puppet and scene workshops.

The tour ended at the Center’s Nancy Staub Archive and Research Library, where SLA student member Ian Franklin is currently an intern. The library contains books, periodicals, and videos on puppetry, as well as an archive of the Center’s history and puppet history in general. The collection is international in scope, and contains materials from as early as 1920. The library and archives are available by appointment to the general public for research use. For more information on the Center for Puppetry Arts and its library, visit www.puppet.org.
