This year’s WIGS (Women’s Imaginative Guild of Storytellers) event at Callanwolde Fine Arts on Saturday, July 12, 2016, will be dedicated to Jane Augusta Lindsey Hinds, who worked tirelessly for WIGS by creating stories especially for the events and doing any other job that needed doing to make the day a success. What memories do you have of Jane that you can share? Please send them to Janice at email@example.com, or contact her at 404-277-2704, so she can create a fitting tribute to Jane Augusta Lindsey Hinds. To make reservations/purchase tickets, contact WIGS at 404-982-0523 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sautee Nacoochee Center will again host an Appalachian Evening of Music and Storytelling on Saturday, July 12, at 7:30 PM. Sweet Sunny South will feature SOS members Debbie Weston From, Hannah From, and Tracy Sue Walker in a performance of Ain’t No Hill for a Climber. Appalachian women have always been strong. Really strong. Discover the stories and songs that reveal the hard-wearing women who make the mountains seem like mole hills.
Harpist extraordinaire Mary Raymer will open the evening.
Admission is free and seating is general. There will be a pass-the-hat donation request at the end of the performance, with all proceeds to benefit SNCA (www.snca.org).
Southern Order of Storytellers member Sarah Beth Nelson is performing her one-woman show, “American Librarian”, two times this summer.
