Celebrating our ‘Southern Style’

Published 12:06 am Sunday, August 22, 2010

Come one, come all! Concordia Parish Library is hosting “We’re Just Folks” — Southern Style!

The Miss-Lou is indeed very fortunate to have Amanda Taylor and her team at the Concordia Parish Library. For many years they have been hosting entertaining cultural programs for all ages to enjoy. “We’re Just Folks” — Southern Style is a perfect model of the superb curriculum Concordia Parish Library frequently provides at no charge to the public. Delta Bank is proud to co-sponsor this series and encourages you to attend.

This three-week short story and discussion series promises to please with stories such as “The Secret of the Great River” by Edith Ogden Harrison and “Masque Macabre” by E. Earl Sparling. Enjoy this “Southern Style” collection on Thursday evenings, Aug. 26, Sept. 2 and Sept. 9 in the Vidalia Library at 6 p.m.

Retired ULM professor Georgiann Potts returns to delight us with her real-life humor and southern belle charm as she presents these stories straight from Louisiana and other southern states.

Come discuss “There’s No Place Like Home” this Thursday as Mrs. Potts delves into Southern memories; learn the concept of “Family Secrets” and how “family” goes well beyond “blood kin” in the South on Sept. 9; and find out how “Keeping up Appearances” is a survival skill of Southern genteel traditions on Sept. 9.

A short intermission with tasty refreshments will provide a chance to socialize and exchange ideas. “We’re Just Folks” is free and open to the public.

Join in the fun on Thursday evenings, Aug. 26, Sept. 2 and Sept. 9 starting at 6 p.m. at the Vidalia Library. We hope to see you there!

Cliff Merritt is the president and CEO of Delta Bank.
