Venable keynotes

Wilderness Wildlife Week begins today in Pigeon Forge. Eight days of outdoor and regional cultural presentations and outings.  

Tonight at 7:45 p.m., WWW presents keynote speaker Sam Venable. Noted as a local storyteller, humorist, author and long-time columnist for the Knoxville News-Sentinel, Sam's talk: How to Tawlk and Rite Good: An Introduction to the Native Tongue of Southern Appalachia will be in the Dobro/Harp Rooms.

On a personal note: Sam wrote the introduction to my first book: Natural Histories. He was the first to read the manuscript, albeit in rough form.
