2mHOGANSVILLE HERALD---THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1999 7 LIBRARY NEWS By Jane Cheatham Gottshall, Branch Manager 1 Make your plans to attend the Azalea Storytelling Festival in LaGrange on March 5-7. Donald Davis, one of the nationally acclaimed storytellers featured at this festival, spent time with the students at Hogansville Elementary School last week. His specialty is telling original and traditional Southern stories. Our Youth Librarian, Yvonne Bledsoe, was invited to join in the activities and observed that the students en- joyed his stories very much. She said he also gave them useful information about the art of storytelling and en- couraged them to find opportunities to develop their skills. Students in the fifth grade pre- sented a play they created from an Appalachian story entitled "Down, Down the Mountain". The story is about Hetty and I-tank eating corn- bread from an iron skillet and raising turnips to earn money to buy shoes. Ms. Bledsoe had read this story at the school during Heritage Day activi- ties last October. Mr. Davis gave the students tips on dramatizing a story. Other nationally acclaimed story- tellers featured at the Azalea Storytelling Festival are Milbre Butch and Rex Ellis. Nancy Kavanaugh, chair of the board of directors of the National Storytelling Association is Master of Ceremonies. Other story- tellers on the program are Sam and Sallie Worley "One Heart", Pam McGrath, and Hosansville's own Carol Cain. As we all know, Carol Cain lights up the stage with her zany folktales, family stories, and award- winning historical monologues. Don't miss the fun at the Azalea Storytelling Festival.

Hogansville Poet Named To Who's Who M. Rosser Lunsford, Poet Laure- ate of Putnam County and Cold Day On Sinclair Tree tops bend this way and that, droplets O f rain chill the air, whitecaps lash the stable shore on a boatless Lake Sinclair... Birds and squirrels are hidden, many leaves cover the ground, wind through the pines hums its song as evergreens bounce around... Docks are bare, waiting for spring, gray skies reach down to earth, smoke from chimneys blows groundward and all life is at a hush... Hogansville's native son, was recently named to the International Who's Who of Authors and Writers. Since be recognized globally as the premier Mountain Of Hope. We humans strive to peak the mountain of hope; Upward we climb with picks of dreams and hearts of rope... Some fill their desires of life and depart to a safe ledge; Others fall back or continue on for what is hope but a pledge... Some reach the high summit and gain life's every thrill; Careful they must be up there for now it's all down hill. that time he has been nominated to have his biography included in the Marquis Who's Who in America.
