Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird, years after its release, has left a lasting impact on both school classrooms and modern society.

As the trial progresses, Scout and her brother Jem witness their community divided over issues of racism and justice. The Lakewood Center for the Arts now brings the powerful story to the Portland area.

An American folk icon, Tom Paxton graces the Alberta Rose stage with his original and timeless folk-song repertoire, classic voice and presence. Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends and community. As Pete Seeger said, "Tom's songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they're becoming part of America." The DonJuans is the long-awaited performing duo comprised of Grammy-winning songwriters Don Henry and Jon Vezner. Enjoy this folk concert at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre.
