Rolling, rolling, rolling...


This year marks what would have been Eudora Welty's 100th birthday. Jackson was the place she called home for many years, so it's fitting that the city is paying hommage to her in many ways.


One of the most prominent is the staging of The Ponder Heart at New Stage Theater. The Eudora Welty Society is also hosting a special forum before one of the performances and every person who attends will get a special signed print. New Stage needed 300+ posters rolled up and tied in bows for the event - so the call went out to their industrious volunteers.


Here are the results of our work showcased against the "Wall of Fame" in the theater lobby. We got all the posters rolled in record time - and had a good time while doing it!

bravo, cela va donner une superbe exposition. Je ne connaissais pas Eurora Welty, alors j'ai découvert un site sur sa fondation.

It's great to see the photos and learn something at the same time, I wish I knew more about our area, but I'm new and just learning.

Good job, Halcyon! Eudora Welty was in her own league as a writer.

Eudora Welty is my all-time favourite southern writer, and God knows you have enough of those and all brilliant. There's something in the south that produces good writers - the tradition of telling stories, of course. I have all her books, including some of her photography. How I'd love to visit the forum. Miz Welty's short stories are in a class apart. So pleased I caught this post, Halcyon.

Oh and I'd like to see the print. Maybe i could buy one? Check out my post on Monday. It features a restaurant I've shown before but is a good choice for your trip to B"HAM>
