Grassroots Theater A Search for the Arts in America, Robert Gard, 1955
Grassroots Theater A Search for the Arts in America, 1955 was written by Robert Gard with a foreword by David H. Stevens. This is the First edition.
The light orange hardcover book is a memory of observations and associations with rural arts, rural writers and in particular, a Wisconsin idea of theater and its practices. The writer is, as others have observed, a kind of "Johnny Appleseed" of the arts, Rural Arts, whose easy writings reveal that perceptive person one can enjoy.
This book is rarely seen in this hardcover edition, establishing it as a highly collectible addition to any well balanced library - public or private.
