The Jubilee! Book Discussion Group Returns
…Monday, August 7th at 1:30 pm
Join us for a conversation about Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment & Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words
The Jubilee! Book Discussion Group which has been on summer hiatus for the month of July is returning. Join the group on the first Monday in August which is the 7th, at 1:30 pm in the Hospitality Room. We will begin discussion of Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment & Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words, by David Whyte. From Amazon: “With the imagery of a poet and the reflection of a philosopher, David Whyte turns his attention to 52 ordinary words, each its own particular doorway into the underlying currents of human life …CONSOLATIONS invites readers into a poetic and thoughtful consideration of words whose meaning and interpretation influence the paths we choose and the way we traverse them throughout our lives.” Questions? Call Claudia Sherry at 713-3720.
David Wilcox and Peter Mayer at Jubilee!
…Friday August 11th, at 7 pm
Asheville’s own David Wilcox will return to Jubilee! to help celebrate another year as part of this creative and vibrant community. Wilcox, a graduate of Warren Wilson College, lived in Howard Hanger’s “Hanger Hall” back in the 1980s, when he was just starting to be noticed for his singing, guitar playing and songwriting talent. Now 18+ albums later, his career has brought him into the hearts of audiences across America. David has invited his friend, Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter Peter Mayer to open the show for him. Peter is the artist who wrote the song that we sing regularly at Jubilee! – Blue Boat Home. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show starts at 7 pm. Tickets are $20 in advance at Brown Paper Tickets (http://www.brown papertickets.com/event/ 3016082) and $22 at the door.
