Dolores Hydock and Bobby Horton Debut "A Sweet Strangeness Thrills My Heart: The Journals of Sallie Independance Foster, 1861 - 1887"

Date: 
04/26/2013 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

Sallie Foster was 12 years old when the Civil War began. Her journal, begun in June 1861, paints a picture of a child’s innocent world that is gradually darkened by the reality of war. The journal continues through the war and for another 22 years, as Sallie grows to be a young woman, marries, and begins a family of her own. Through Sallie's writings, historical photographs, and music of the time, storyteller Dolores Hydock and music historian Bobby Horton share with us this uniquely personal glimpse at a radically changing world. There will be a light hors d'oeuvres buffet starting at 6:30 p.m., and the show follows, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for the buffet and show. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and will be available beginning Wednesday, April 1st. Advance reservations required. To make a reservation, visit the Adult Services Desk at the library, or call 332-6625. Cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard accepted.
