Special to the Observer from John Ford ---
Ozark Folkways will be host to two literary events in November with famed author Crescent Dragonwagon and local music legend Crow Johnson Evans. Billed as “An Evening With Crow and Crescent” and “Until Just Moistened, A One Woman Show with Crumbs”, both events take place at Ozark Folkways
in Winslow during the second week of November.
On November 14 from 7-9 pm, Crescent Dragonwagon and Crow Johnson will be sharing stories and conversation at an open house benefiting Dragonwagon’s mother, children’s book author Charlotte Zolotow. In addition to conversation, music and story telling, both Dragonwagon and Zolotow’s books will be on sale. Food and drink will be provided and admission is by donation.
Crescent Dragonwagon, called by the Chicago Tribune “…one of America’s most prolific and versatile writers… an earthy, red-headed yarn-spinning woman,” is the author of 50 published books in multiple genres — novels, cookbook-memoirs, poetry, children’s books. Owner of the Dairy Hollow House in Eureka Springs, Dragonwagon for many years before relocating to Vermont has a sizeable local following and national following.
Award winning songwriter and performer Crow Johnson Evans is a resident of Northwest Arkansas and founding board member of the Writer’s Colony at Dairy Hollow House. She has turned her efforts of the last decade to fiber arts and writing (CrowSpun).
On Saturday, November 16 from 11 am-2 pm, Ozark Folkways will host Crescent Dragonwagon in their newly renovated community kitchen with a limited number of participants. Part performance, part cooking demo, part interactive discussion and all highly entertaining, Dragonwagon will serve up her famous cornbread wisdom and offer thoughts on cooking, nutrition and cookbook writing. Lunch with the author is included. Suggested donation is $75.00 and space is limited.
