When: Tuesday, March 22 at 10:00am


In the great oral tradition of the story teller, Sari Semple takes us back to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of the mid-nineteenth century. As Sari spins her tales the listener is transported to those hills. The stories blend together the folklore and the gritty reality of life in the ridges and hollers of Appalachia. These original stories, written and performed by Jessica, are comic, dramatic and even tragic. Young and old alike will be spellbound by the rich tapestry of words woven by Sari. She is the First Lady of Appalachia.

This program is co-sponsored by the DeForest Area Public Library, the DeForest Area Historical Society, and the DeForest Area Community & Senior Center.
