A NATURAL HISTORY OF MY HUSBAND'S CARS - Fri, July 29, 7:30pm

Even as a young boy in Northern Virginia, Jim Landry always wanted to drive. Fascinated by cars, he began driving himself to piano lessons at age 12 in his mother's '61 Mercury station wagon. From a '62 Volkswagon Beetle ragtop to a '72 Oldsmobile to the pocket-rocket '90 Plymouth Laser, he's owned nine cars and each has a story.

Join playwright Nicole Burton and her husband, photographer and musician Jim Landry for A Natural History of My Husband's Cars—a ride through one man's automotive life and times. In the 75-minute performance, Landry and Burton weave stories, photographs, and original music with a social history of the cars' vintages. 

A Natural History of My Husband's Cars will be presented at the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium on Friday, July 29 at 7:30 pm as part of the “We Are Takoma” series. 

Admission is free (suggested donation $15). For more information, call 301-891-7224.

The Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium is located at 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, MD. Takoma Metro/Parking on site.
