The Churchill Arts Council presents, The Paul Thorn Band.
Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of mu-sic-bluesy, rocking, unabashedly Southern. Thorn’s songs convey tales of people living on the margins of society in a mixture of the sacred and profane that covers the good, the bad and everything in between. His blend of Rock, Blues and Country has been characterized as being like going to church with a six-pack. More Info: paulthorn.com or churchillarts.org

The Churchill Arts Council presents a reading by a fresh new voice in fiction, the author of the startling debut novel, Girlchild.
“Ms. Hassman is such a poised storyteller that her prose practically struts. Her words are as elegant as they are fierce. A voice as fresh as hers is so rare that at times I caught myself cheering, and it wasn’t necessarily for the kid.” -Susannah Meadows, The New York Times Editor’s Choice, Sunday Book Review
