Live and Local

“Words in the Wind” from Illinois Public Media and “The Wiz” at Urbana High School


“Words in the Wind” has become an annual event to benefit Illinois Public Media’s Book Mentor Project. Some of Champaign-Urbana’s best actors will offer two presentations this year of concert-style readings of children’s books. We’ll have a live preview on the Monday edition of “Live and Local.” We’ll also hear, live in our studio, students from Urbana High School’s upcoming production of The Wiz, giving their own twist to the celebrated musical.
