October: Bess Streeter Aldrich Programs

posted Oct 6, 2017, 3:04 PM by Cherie Dargan
Saturday, Oct. 14 -- morning Bess Streeter Aldrich bus tour of all the metro Aldrich historical sites (cottage, rock, etc.), conducted by Rosemary Beach.  Call the CF Tourist & Visitors Bureau to sign up for a seat.  Already more than 30 have signed up--so we think it will be sold out.  So tell all who might want to go.

Sunday, Oct. 15, 2:00 to 3:30, Hillside Cemetery, East Lone Tree Road -- "Song of Years" Cemetery Walk, hosted by the CF Historical Society.  Come see the characters in Aldrich's novel come to life.  (Song of Years is about the settling of CF.)

Monday, Oct. 16, 7:00 p.m., CF Public Library -- Jim O'Loughlin's multi-media presentation on Aldrich's "The Woman Who Was Forgotten"

Sunday, Oct. 22, 4:30 p.m., Oster Regent Theatre -- Screening of "Cheers for Miss Bishop," the 1941 major motion picture based on Aldrich's CF novel Miss Bishop (about an ISTC teacher).  The film premiered in 1941 at the Regent and now-- 76 years later--it will reprise at the Regent.
