Don’t let NLCC events pass you by

If you haven’t joined in any of the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration events yet, you’ve probably missed out.

But don’t sulk, the best is yet to come.

The annual NLCC — which received a Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts Thursday in Jackson — will continue today, Saturday and Sunday.

In our opinion, one of the highlights of this year’s event occurs later today.

Seven area coaches are the stars of the show at 8 p.m. when a documentary titled “Behind the Whistle: A Coach’s Story” is shared with the public.

The locally produced documentary will be shown at 8 p.m. at the Natchez Convention Center, for free.

Ken and Craig Beesley, Dee Faircloth, Melanie Hall, Johnny Lee Hoffpauir, Henry Harris and Lance Reed are all a part of the documentary.

The NLCC theme this year is “Fields of Dreams: Sports in the South,” and highlighting the local coaching legends is a great way to get the Natchez community involved.

Sessions start at 9 a.m. this morning and again on Saturday for those looking to gain even more knowledge and entertainment right here in town.

Rarely will you find such a quality event with so many free programs.

With a Governor’s Award in hand, the organizers of the NLCC have more proof than ever that their event is one not to be missed.
