Yolo County Library Foundation welcomes award-winning author and actress Sharon Washington who will discuss her autobiographical one-woman play, Feeding the Dragon, about her childhood growing up living in an apartment inside the St. Agnes Branch of the New York Public Library; a typical American family living in a not-so-typical place. For her performance, Ms. Washington was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle and the Lucille Lortel Awards and won an Audelco Award for Outstanding Solo Performance.

In Feeding the Dragon, Ms. Washington revisits this experience through the various voices of her childhood, including her father, mother, grandmothers, aunts and uncles, neighbors and friends.

Ms. Washington notes that the other character in the play is New York City. “In the 1970’s it was a very different place. Despite the danger and turmoil of the times there were still neighborhoods where folks looked after one another.” In her play, Ms. Washington shares her memories of one of these special New York City neighborhoods.

Ms. Washington can currently be seen in The Joker with Joaquin Phoenix, The Kitchen with Tiffany Haddish and On The Basis of Sex with Felicity Jones. She has an upcoming recurring role in the new ABC series For Life (2020) and can be seen in the final season of Madam Secretary. Ms. Washington’s recurring roles include Showtime’s City On A Hill, Gotham, Law & Order: SVU and Damages. She has also guest starred on Blue Bloods, The Blacklist, Golden Boy, White Collar, Royal Pains, NYC 22, Law & Order and Law & Order: CI. Her film appearances include The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton, Taking Chance, Freedomland, The School of Rock, Half Nelson, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Malcolm X, and Die Hard With A Vengeance, among others.

Ms. Washington received her M.F.A. from the Yale School of Drama and her B.A. from Dartmouth College.
