Reading List – The Herd
Persephone Theatre is pleased to partner with Turning the Tide Bookstore to create book lists for our performances.
Lists will be curated by the Turning the Tide staff, to act as a supplement to what you see on our stage. They will help to expand your knowledge about the themes, history and information within our productions.
All the books on the list are available for purchase through the Turning the Tide website: turning.ca.
