Stories of Help, Hope and Healing for All Ages - Nov. 2, 1:30-4:30 p.m.

Join us for two performances of healing stories with a reception in-between. Cry Heart, But Never Break (best-selling Danish author Glenn Ringtved) is a gentle tale of four siblings facing the loss of their grandmother. Stories of Help, Hope and Healing capture nine stories of cancer patients during treatment; produced by East Tennessee State University and their Storytelling Graduate program. Local actors including participants from On Top of the World, perform Help, Hope and Healing. A reception between the two performances features stories about Hospice of Marion County's Pet Peace of Mind program.

Arts and Dementia Care! - Nov. 9, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Caregivers and others working with dementia individuals can learn how different art disciplines can be useful in dementia caregiving.

Florida Soul

From Ray Charles in the mid-1940s to KC and the Sunshine Band in the late '70s, Florida has a rich soul music heritage that's been overlooked. Did you know that the great soul duo Sam and Dave came out of Miami? John Capouya, University of Tampa professor and author of the new book Florida Soul, will play classic R&B, show vintage photos, and share his research into this important musical history.

Ray Charles got his musical training in St. Augustine. The great soul duo Sam and Dave (Soul Man'') was formed in Miami, while James and Bobby Purify ("Im Your Puppet'') hailed from Pensacola. They're all parts of Florida's rich soul music history, which has often been overlooked. This R&B legacy--including Betty Wright, Timmy Thomas, Jackie Moore and Linda Lyndell--extends to KC & the Sunshine Band in the late 1970s.

In his new book Florida Soul, John Capouya establishes this state as a soul capital. A University of Tampa professor, he will play classic R&B, show vintage photos, and share his research into this important cultural heritage. Price: $10, members receive a $5 discount.
