What a surprise to see so many Story Fans in Flathead Valley eager to listen to stories told live! We expected 50-60 people, maybe less as it was a 99+ degree day, but over 100 found seats and standing space in The Wild Side room at Sacred Waters last night (8/15).
They listened actively and silently from 6:15-7:30, absorbing the inspiring stories about "Nature & Nurture" from our 7 Tellers: RJ Young ("Wild Child"), Bobbie Williams ("Tails of Rescue" - pictured above), Rebecca Ashcroft ("Bad Friday"), Craig Thomas Naylor ("Playing Catch"), Heidi Wolf ("Searching For My Lost Soul"), Katie Carey ("Chrysacolla & Quartz: a Love Story") and Glenn Schiffman ("Lessons from Plants via Gramma Minnie").
Thanks a million to Jackie Evans and Sacred Waters Brewing for co-hosting and sponsoring this new event. Thanks to Authors of the Flathead, The Bookshelf Kalispell, and My Glacier Village for spreading the word as other sponsors.
Looking forward to our next Story Concert (10/15 - 5-7pm) at Sacred Waters. It will be cooler in mid-October, and we will be ready for a full house again!
