MONDAY, June 5th @ 7pm: JUNE SHORTS ~ Roald Dahl at War
Roald Dahl was a British popular author of children's literature and
short stories, a poet, and wartime fighter ace. He rose to prominence as a writer in the 1940s with works for children
and for adults, and he became one of the world's best-selling authors. His
books have sold more than 300 million copies worldwide. Dahl has been called
"one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century". Dahl's short stories are
known for their unexpected endings, and his children's books for their
unsentimental, macabre, often darkly comic mood, featuring villainous adult
enemies of the child characters.
Tonight Kayden and Caledonia share a different side of Dahl from the popular author of "James & The Giant Peach" and the Wonka books. In the short stories "Shot Down Over Libya" and "Beware of the Dog" Dahl explores the World War II experience.
