With Keynote Carolyn Curry

11:30 am to 1:30 pm
$25 – Members

Book lovers will not want to miss Festival keynote Carolyn Curry’s moving talk on faith, hope and courage. Curry is the author of Suffer and Grow Strong, the Life of Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas (1834-1907). Her husband Bill Curry will introduce Carolyn.

This is an intimate story of devastating loss and ultimate triumph. Carolyn Curry brings to life the perseverance and metamorphosis of a real life Scarlett O’Hara in the story of Ella “Gertrude” Clanton Thomas. This intelligent, spirited woman was born in 1834 to one of the wealthiest families in Georgia. Thomas began keeping a diary at age 14 and her accounts of life before, during, and after the Civil War filled 13 volumes with 450,000 words. The war and its aftermath changed her life forever. She experienced poverty, illness, and devastating family strife. She saw four of her 10 children die. She grew to question the “peculiar institution” upon which the antebellum South was built. Through it all, Thomas poured her thoughts into her diary and persevered. In her later years, she became a human rights activist.

    Can the events be for a fee.  We have art workshops but they are not free although open to anyone who wished to attend and pay the fee.  These are nationally known instructors and  do not come for free.

  7. Ameliaprivateeye

    Hi Sandra,
    Events that are one day events are perfect for the calendar, and of course multiple day festivals, even if there is a fee or admission price. If the event/class is multiple days a press release is encouraged, and we publish those for free, too. (Sometimes we will put them in the calendar AND publish the press release information.) If you have any other questions about SearchAmelia, you can email me directly at Judie@SearchAmelia.com

  8. Aspasia the Promulgator

    Hi guys, and happy holidays to you and yours. For the month of December, the location for the Fernandina Pirates Club blood drive has been changed to the Journey Church parking lot.
