An Evening with Storytellers

By Julie Duke, Youth Services Manager

The Library’s Foundation’s ticketed event, An Evening with Storytellers, brought in over 60 library supporters, and the Foundation made over $1,000.  Speakers were Eric Jacobsen, CEO of Carter house and Carnton Plantation, Thomas Flagel, History Instruction at Columbia State CC, and Bryan Lane, who recently published a book on General Adams, on of the Generals killed at Franklin.

One gentleman, who had purchased a book at this event evening, was also at the Book Release Party.  He said he had read the book cover to cover, and it was “excellent”.  A woman who was at the Storytellers evening was back on at the Book Release to buy another book!  She said that she had company visiting from out of town.  They were seeing the sites in Franklin, and used our book as a guide as they toured.
