The performance, "ABC: Alphabet, Book, Child," stars 10 students from Irving School and is a blend of humanities lecture and children's theatre. The performance draws on the roots of American literacy, including 19th century children's primers, chapbooks and entertainments as it examines the issue of "What is a book?"
Sexson wrote the lecture and play, which is sponsored by the Montana Committee for the Humanities, Irving International School, the Museum of the Rockies, and the MSU Department of History and Philosophy, Montana State University.
