Get LOST for a Cause with KAMPN Silent Auction

Silent Auction benefiting KAMPN at 6:00pm
KAMPN (Kids with Autism Making Progress in Nature) is a 501-(c)3 organization located in Deep Gap, NC. KAMPN was started in 2011 as a nature-based, cost-free, summer camping program for children with autism and their families- this camping program was named KAMPN’s Camp Cogger. After 4 summers, KAMPN’s Camp Cogger is going strong and the organization has begun to develop plans for KAMPN’s newest undertaking- the LIFE Village. KAMPN’s LIFE (Living Innovations For the Exceptional) Village will be a supported housing community for adults with autism and related disorders in the local Boone area. The overall mission of both KAMPN’s Camp Cogger and KAMPN’s LIFE Village stems from the simple belief that we are all here to live in a community of joy and that with acceptance and support this belief will become a reality for all.  For more information on KAMPN’ Camp Cogger or LIFE Village check out our website at www.KAMPN4autism.appstate.edu.

April 30 Author Visit: Eva Nell Null Wike

Saturday, April 30, 11 am

Meeting Room, Watauga County Public Library

Author Visit: Eva Nell Mull Wike, author of Fiddler of the Mountains

Storyteller and author Eva Nell Mull Wike, PhD., travels to Watauga Library to present her book, Fiddler of the Mountains – Attuned to the Life and Times of Johnny Mull.

In the author’s own words:

“My book won the North Carolina Historical Society Award and it comes with a CD of my Uncle Johnny’s music. You may view it and read reviews on AMAZON.COM. The music was restored in the National Recording Studio in Rome, Georgia, from the old acetate records which were recorded in Canton, Ohio in the 1940s & 50s. It all seems like some kind of a miracle that I ‘accidentally’ got my Uncle Johnny’s personal photos from a dear friend who had worked with Johnny up in Canton, in the 1950’s. I no sooner got the photos from him, ‘til a few days later he upped and died during open-heart surgery in Atlanta!

About the same time, the Ohio landlady sent me the old acetate records which had been stored away in her closet for decades! Then just a few days later, her son called me to say that she had passed away. So in between sad times, I got down to business and wrote Johnny’s story. And dog-on if my book didn’t win the North Carolina Society of Historian’s AWARD!”

Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and each copy includes a CD of rare music performed by mountain fiddler Johnny Mull.

Persons with special needs please contact the Library five or more days before the event so that reasonable arrangements may be made. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring our events.
