The Commonweal Theatre, located in historic downtown Lanesboro, is proud to welcome justice and peace activist June Kjome for its Sunday Salon discussion series on Sunday, September 18th immediately following the matinee performance of To Kill a Mockingbird.

Part presentation and part audience discussion, Commonweal's Sunday Salon series takes an opportunity to explore in greater depth some of the themes and historical contexts of Commonweal Theatre productions. Previous guest speakers have included Paws and Claws volunteer Char Carey, Professor Peter Scholl from Luther College, watercolor artist Charlotte Laxen, and World War II veteran Orval Amdahl. This month, Commonweal will host La Crosse resident June Kjome, who will share some of her lifetime experiences as an advocate and activist for human rights. The cast of Commonweal's current production of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will also be on hand to engage in a post-performance discussion.

There is no additional cost for the Sunday Salon event, but attendance is restricted to ticket holders of the September 18th performance of To Kill a Mockingbird at 1:30 pm. Reservations can be made by calling the Commonweal Theatre's Box Office at (800) 657-7025, emailing a request to tickets@ commonwealtheatre.org, or stopping in to the theatre located at 208 Parkway Ave N in downtown Lanesboro.

Funding for Commonweal Theatre's programming is provided in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and private funders.
