Babcock Performing Readers will present An Evening With A.A. Milne, with selections adapted by Gordon S. Jones, Nov. 3, 2016, in the Little Theater in the University of Utah Student Union. Admission is free. A.A. Milne as the creator of "Winnie the Pooh," but few know of Milne's more serious writing – which was considerable, though generally with a light touch. With excerpts from his contributions to Punch magazine, and other occasional essays, director Gordon Jones shows a different side of this insightful, creative, and thoughtful man. Always whimsical, Milne used humor to call attention to many of the niggling problems that plague and puzzle us yet today.
