John Harrison – Destiny Gardens: March 17th – 31st
Destiny Gardens (YA)
A disparate group of abandoned kids in the late 1950’s band together for survival in a vacant and derelict public meeting hall. In their Dickensian world, they cross paths with Mafia godfather, Charles “Lucky” Luciano, and a sinister New Orleans pimp named Rance Charles who has arrived to reclaim what’s his.
In the style of Stephen King’s THE BODY (aka Stand by Me), and the novels of S.E. Hinton, DESTINY GARDENS opens a door into a world not long ago where the definition of “child” and “adult” was a distinction without a difference.
