The West Palm Beach Library Foundation will host Palm Beach Dramaworks, as they present My Books, Banned and Burned, a theatrical performance where actors will portray Ernest Hemingway, Helen Keller and other acclaimed authors whose books were burned in 1933 by university students in Nazi Germany. The burning of books soon became the symbolic foreshadowing of German-Jewish writer Heinrich Heine’s 19th century warning, “Where one burns books, one soon burns people.” This performance will be staged by Palm Beach Dramaworks resident director J. Barry Lewis.
