With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

     Thu, Oct 4th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Family & Education 0
    “Winner of Barter’s 2018 Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights.” By Alice Stanley In the midst of the first gruesomely violent event of the legendary Hatfield and McCoy feud, one woman does what she must to save her family. Sally McCoy tells a harrowing and deeply personal story which takes a hard look at how women’s stories and perspectives are too often excluded from our historical narratives. Set in August 1882, Sally’s three eldest sons are captured by the Hatfield clan. Sally defies her womanly place in the home and crosses miles of Appalachian wilderness in the dark of night to save her children from certain death at the vengeful hands of the Hatfields. After traveling all those miles alone, she arrives at the home of the Hatfield patriarch, “Devil” Anse Hatfield, and refuses to let anything stand in her way until she has seen the “Devil” face to face.

  8. Rita Quillen and Other Poets (May 20)

     Sun, May 20th - VA Highlands Community College  Family & Education, Arts & Culture, Music, Church & Ministry 0
    Meet Rita Quillen, one of the region's finest poets, who will lead the annual 'Celebration of Regional Poetry.' Her new volume, The Mad Farmer's Wife, is a response to a life lived on a mountain cattle farm in Southwest Virginia and also to a poetic persona created by noted Kentucky poet and essayist Wendell Berry over thirty years ago: the Mad Farmer. In a world increasingly detached from the land that supplies our all our essential resources, Quillen's poetry tries to help us understand the complexity and challenge of living a rural life in today's economy and the dark life-and -death struggles that are a routine part of farm living. She will be joined at this event by other poets from the Appalachian Center for Poets and Writers. Sponsored by Washington County Friends of the Library.
