On Friday, February 15, a packed audience in the Lucy Hurlin Theatre was treated to the “Love & Winter” edition of the Black Fly Story Hour.
The event was a fundraiser for the Thornton Wilder Center for the Arts, the proposed ConVal High School performing arts center building.
Jamie Trowbridge served once more as the Master of Ceremony. Storytellers included Jud Hale, Zoë Wroten-Heinzmann, John Kerrick, Linda Greenwood, Lila Trowbridge, Clay Hollister, Daisy Young, Ben Putnam, Michelle Tourgee, and Bill Edson.
During the intermission, there was a special film premiere, a short documentary by Carter Hammond featuring community members, faculty, alumni, students, and parents expressing their thoughts on why the center is necessary and what it could offer for our community.
The Black Fly Story Hour is an homage to NPR’s Moth Radio Hour.
