In the Arms of Mother Earth: Living Close to the Land
with Annie Hawkins
Sunday, November 18th – 7 pm
First Universalist Parish, CHESTER
For four years now, Rural Vermont has partnered with master storyteller Annie Hawkins for an enchanted evening of traditional folk tales rooted in rural life. Join us for the fourth annual event, guaranteed to captivate and delight adults and children of all ages (however not well suited for the very young). Following the performance, stay to mingle over refreshments with Annie and Rural Vermont staff and board, as well as browse Annie’s CD collection and Rural Vermont merchandise.
Annie Hawkins has been performing at universities, theatres, museums, nature centers and other venues all over the country for two decades. She brings a child’s sense of exuberance and wonder to the stage. She is also the author of published short stories, poems and essays. Her column Renegade Poet was published in The Kennett Paper, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania for five years and won a Keystone Press Award. She currently writes a monthly column for The Weekly Commons in Brattleboro, VT.
“Please count on us being there with metaphoric bells on. Having seen Annie perform, I know this is an event not to be missed. We’ll be driving about 2.5 hours to come to Chester for anyone who needs a challenge/example/incentive to overcome seasonal or weekend inertia.” —Fiona Farrell, Full Circle Farm, Saratoga, New York
