Don't Miss Allan Wolf - Poet & Storyteller Extraordinarie!
A special program for children (and adults) of all ages takes place at 9:00 a.m. the library this Thursday, September 18. Alan Wolf will be visiting to inspire us with stories and poems as part of Ashe County's On the Same Pager Literary Festival. The Watch That Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic. This story recreates the 1912 sinking of the Titanic as observed by millionaire John Jacob Astor, a beautiful young Lebanese refugee finding first love, "Unsinkable" Molly Brown, Captain Smith, and others including the iceberg itself. The library display cases also feature a Titanic memorabilia collection, on loan by Stephen Fox. Be sure to take a look at this amazing exhibit while visiting the library (through the month of September).
