Another Storytelling Night

I'm on the road again today, this time to Wytheville, VA, to participate in their Tellabration event.

Tonight, 7:00pm, at Oracle Books. Be there or be square, as a disc jockey used to say in my teenage years!

Looking forward to the drive down south, as it's been quite a while since we've been to Wytheville--at least 4 years, I believe.

I'll be telling with friends Wendy Welch and Jack Beck, former owners of the successful Little Book Store of Big Stone Gap.

Wendy wrote a fascinating book about their lives as book store owners in an increasinly digital world. Both are storytellers and balladsingers; Jack is from Scotland, and brings his culture alive with his stories and songs.

Should be an interesting evening!

  1. Enjoy!!!

    Ahhhh, book stores... In this (small-ish) city, we had a long running used book store. The old fashioned kind. It was...So unique... "Jam packed" as the saying goes. The owner died sadly.....

    Wonder if such, will eventually die out? A sad "wonder", but.....

    Anyway, enjoy!

    And I love the look of that lady. I'll bet she gives a lot of hugs! My kind of gal. -smile-


  2. Oh and please tell me, the name of those lovely battery powered candles you have on your mantle.

    They look more like real candles, than the battery powered ones I have seen! Than the one I have...! Never got another, since it is such a "bust." LOL

    Please and thank you.


  3. Sounds like a good time. Thanks for the info about another book for me to find...

  4. Did they have a blog? I don't think I read a book about that store but I seem to remember reading some kind of ongoing chronicle.
    Have fun, Sue!

  5. Love Wytheville-miss it since I moved to Indy.
    Love the theatre...and even the Cracker Barrel is a good one...
    love your blog
