March for Climate, Justice and Jobs on April 29
BOONE, N.C. – Climate Voices US (CVUS) invites local community members and students to travel from Boone, NC to Washington, DC to march with the People’s Climate Movement on April 29, 2017. CVUS has chartered two buses and is offering subsidized travel costs.
The People’s Climate March is a mass mobilization for climate, jobs and justice. Tens of thousands of people have already signed up to converge in Washington, DC to push the Trump administration and Congress to do their jobs – protect our planet, our communities and transition to a renewable energy future.
“Here is the chance for community members and students to join other Americans to demand that our government protect, not destroy, our environment.” said Dave Harman, CVUS executive director.
Climate Voices US is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to empower communities to build sustainable energy futures. For more information and to reserve a seat on the bus, visit ClimateVoicesUS.org.
Watauga County Public Library Presents Free Presentation and Reading During Poetry Month, Apr. 27
Writer, Editor, Musician, Teacher – Katerina Whitley to Speak at High Country Writers, Apr. 13
Katerina Whitley will be the featured presenter at the Thursday, April 13 meeting of the High Country Writers at the Watauga Public Library in Boone. The Library is located at 140 Queen Street. The program will begin at 10:00am, preceded by coffee and conversation from 9:30-10:00am. The program is free and open to the public.
Katerina was born in Thessaloniki, Greece and immigrated to this country at the age of 16. She studied at a prestigious school in Thessaloniki where she learned English and an appreciation for what was good in the American culture. She received a scholarship to Mars Hill College where she studied music. She finished her English studies at Furman University, followed by theological studies at seminary. Katerina’s professional career included a 20 year stint as a church journalist, an assignment that took her to many parts of the world. She has written and published seven books to date in which she combines her love of theology, drama and story-telling. Her most recent book, a novel, is titled A New Love. She will speak about the art of writing first as listening, then as imagining before and during the act of putting words on paper. She will also address the importance of rhythm in writing, dramatic monologues and the extremely critical meaning of context. Katerina will have several of her books for sale following her presentation. This woman is a real treasure…you’ll not want to miss this program.
High Country Writers has been “energizing writers since 1995!” Regular meetings are at the Watauga Public Library on the second and fourth Thursdays of most months from ten until noon and speakers’ programs are co-sponsored with the Library. HCW members present writing skills workshops on the first Thursday of the month and have recently partnered with the Watauga Arts Council in hosting these workshops. In the event of inclement weather which dictates the closure of the Library, the High Country Writers Program will be canceled.
