JACKSONVILLE, IL – Ken Bradbury, a local writer, humorist, director and teacher, will discuss the trials and tribulations of becoming a creative writer. “So He Thinks He Can Write,” will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 at the Thoresen Recital Hall in the Putnam/Springer Center. Putnam/Springer is at the southeast corner of State Street and Clay Avenue on the MacMurray College campus.
Bradbury, the author of the “Coonridge Digest” column that has run in local newspapers for more than 25 years, has written more than 200 plays and musicals. His current projects include ‘Stoops,” a comedy to be performed in Arizona next year followed by a Springfield performance, and “Misfits,” next summer's Jacksonville Theatre Guild production.
Bradbury is also the author of hundreds of scripts for speech competitions, and his work is believed to be the most performed in speech competitions across the country.
