LINDEN–Jeff Baron, an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, grew up in Linden. He went on to write for television, film and theatre, working on The Tracey Ullman Show, Sisters, A Year in the Life, and Nickelodeon. His play, “Visiting Mr. Green,” is one of the most performed plays in the world in the past 15 years, with over 300 productions in 22 languages in 38 countries.
In an hour-long program that will take place in the Columbia Bank Room at the new Linden Public Library, Baron will talk about his unusual career path – earning an MBA from Harvard Business School, developing a new soft drink for the The Coca-Cola Company, speaking at the United Nations and spending the past 20 years as a full time writer. He will read excerpts from his plays, and will show his short film “Goodbye.”
The program will take place on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at the Linden Public Library, 31 East Henry Street. The program is free. Light refreshments will be served.
For more information about the program, or to sign up, contact Dennis Purves at the Library, 908-298-3830, extension 11.
