Today will be a short blog post. I just wanted to remind you all that tomorrow, August 20th, Jim Autry will be reading from his new book On Paying Attention: New and Selected Poems. He will be reading at 7:00pm at La Poste (La Poste is located at 1219 Warford Street, Perry, Iowa). Jim Autry is a retired Meredith executive who has become a business poet. Beaverdale Books will also be selling his book, so you can come and your own personal copy, and then have it signed by Jim Autry! In addition, musician Chad Elliot will also be performing that night, starting at 5:00pm. He will be playing until 10:00pm, so come early, and stay late!
Yet another point of interest at La Poste tomorrow night is the 38th Annual Iowa Watercolor Society Exhibition. They will be displaying 90 great watercolors for everyone to enjoy. These paintings will be at La Poste until September 24 if you want to see them but cannot make tomorrow.
If all of these things were not enough to win you over, La Poste will also be serving food! A meal of a smoked rib eye sandwich, potato salad and chips is only ten dollars. There will also be cellar and gallery drink specials available. In fact, tomorrow night is also Handlebar Happy Hour! All in all, tomorrow night is going to be a lot of fun. I highly encourage you all to come, and hope to see you there!
Hello again Readers,
I apologize for the shorter post today, but I unfortunately have some bad news for all of you. Although we had planned to have an event tomorrow, July 16, unforeseen circumstances have arisen. Mr. Autry has had a serious health issue arise which has required us to reschedule his presentation. He will now be presenting from his book on August 20, 2015, at the same place and time (7:00pm at La Poste in Perry, Iowa). Here at Hometown Heritage, our thoughts are with Mr. Autry hoping for his full recovery. We have contacted as many people as we can about this change, but it we would appreciate it very much if you, the readers, could also spread the word about the postponing of this event to anyone you know that was planning to attend. Further information will also be sent along closer to August 20th.
However, not all the events on Thursday night are being postponed. Musician and artist Chad Elliot will still be providing excellent music that night. We invite everyone to attend this Thursday evening for that portion of the evening’s activities. We also hope to see all of you when August 20th arrives, to welcome Jim Autry to La Poste and to Perry.
Thank you all so very much for your support and understanding.
