Truth Like the Sun
Seattle’s fascination with the 1962 World’s Fair remains unwavering, because it provided the seed of imagination that eventually grew into the city we know today. Jim Lynch’s novel explored the connection between the Fair and modernity in his novel Truth Like the Sun, which now receives its Book-It Theatre adaptation. The story follows the fictional Roger Morgan, aka “Mr. Seattle,” as he’s the toast of the town showing off the city to guests like Elvis during the Worlds Fair in 1962, and as an surprising mayoral candidate in his 70s who is hounded be an overzealous Seattle P-I reporter named Helen Gulanos in 2001.
