The Green Book Wine Club Train Trip focuses on five friends who board a train in Kansas City for a trip across the state of Missouri, stopping at the various wineries. When the imaginative librarian Marie steps off the train, she’s mysteriously transported to the 1940s segregated Boonville depot. As she begins to navigate the pre-civil rights landscape of Mid-Missouri, Marie meets the owner of “colored” brothel, who introduces her to another world that history has hidden from her textbooks. To return home, Marie will need to uncover the truth about her own personal history. Humorous and heart-felt, The Green Book Wine Club Train Trip has ties to our home in Mid-Missouri making it perfect to kick off our season in February.
