    Fup, by Jim Dodge

    A Readers' Theater Adaptation

    A  live theatrical production of the entertaining novella Fup, Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods' Book of the Year for  2013/2014.  Fup tells the story of Jake Santee, his grandson Tiny, and their adopted mallard, Fup, an eccentric duck with a fondness for drinking moonshine. Please note that all of Jim Dodge's salty language is intact. 

    HSU Communications Instructor James Floss and a group of seasoned Chamber Reader alumni will stage a word-for-word adaptation of the acclaimed novella, with visual accompaniment, and an intermission.   Hilarity is intertwined with themes of love, magic, death and transcendence. The Sacramento Bee says, "often eloquent, and always funny, Fup is a contemporary tall tale that ranks with the best."

    Lemonade Day Workshop

    Lemonade Day is coming, and there's a lot to do to get ready! This fun workshop gets kids started: learn fun and healthy lemonade recipes, learn how to budget for your business and track your income, and start creating posters to promote your stand. Register for Lemonade Day online at humboldt.lemonadeday.org .

    Lemonade day is about learning business skills.  Using a lemonade stand as a learning project, Humboldt County youth can earn money and contribute to local causes that are important to them.

    Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that clarifies the lessons of Lemonade Day, like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, kids acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
