Events At UVA-Wise

April is a big month for UVA-Wise. They will hold inauguration ceremonies for the 7th chancellor David J. Prior. There are many special events planned and most are free. I plan on attending "A Celebration of Appalachia: A Sense of Place," on Monday the 3rd that includes this symposium.

Brian S. Wills, Kenneth Asbury Professor of History

2 p.m. How the Scots-Irish Shaped Southwest Virginia

3:40 p.m. The Mining History of Southwest Virginia: Lessons for the Future

5 p.m.A Taste of Appalachia Refreshments illustrating a regional flavor will be provided in the Dogwood Room

There are a few those speakers I plan to approach with the intent of getting them to blog. Most are published authors and I feel they could enrich us with blogging. I have often wondered why no one at the college has an active blog. Strange. I also plan on attending this "American Folk Art Quilts: An Introduction" will be presented by Barbara Rothermel at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 17 for my blog sisters the Red Queen and R'Cat. They both quilt and I feel I should attend. I do get the feeling I could be the only man there. I also plan to catch this "Symphony of the Mountains," a performance of works by Coe, Schubert and Brahms, will be presented at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 30, at the Performing Arts Center in Pound. It is a great month for the Arts here in Wise. If there are any other bloggers who plan on attending let me know. If you would like to check out any of the things I mentioned, you can see the complete schedule here and the KTN has this article about the events.
