Saturday evening, April 5th, NPR's 'Tales from The South' taped a show at our local library in Conway, Arkansas. I was thrilled.
The Faulkner County Library has been one of my regular stops for the past twelve years (more frequently when I was still teaching; in past years, at least once a month when a group of quilt-makers meets for advancement with our projects, fellowship, lunch, and general good times.)
I found an announcement in the 'Friends of the Library' flyer and ordered our tickets for the fish fry, concert, and radio program taping on the spot. We had a great evening.
Looks like they're planning to come back next year!
You can access programs via NPR, or via KUAR's website. 'Tales from The South' is usually taped at The Starving Artist Cafe--a great eatery in North Little Rock--but we've been deterred from attending because of the long drive home in the dark. (We are No Longer Young.) Our evening at the library, which also featured singer/songwriter Jeff Clanton, also from Conway, was delightful.
