The Wild One: An Evening Salon with Frannie Oates, Bard
Frannie Oates, award-winning actress, writer, educator and storyteller shares how the WNC mountains have been a refuge and inspiration. A native of Asheville, NC she has called Henderson County her home for the past twenty-plus years. Many remember her performance last year as Daisy Werthan in Hendersonville Little Theatre’s Driving Miss Daisy, for which she won HLT’s Barney award for Best Performance by an actress in 2011.
She performs her one-woman show, "The Wild One," at The Fountainhead Bookstore, Sat., June 2, 7 p.m. Tickets are $12.00, of which 15% goes to support the Muddy Sneakers program, a WNC organization that seeks to counter “nature deficit disorder” in our young people. Executive Director Ryan Olson said, “Here in WNC, we have such tremendous resources and yet many children have never been exposed to or educated on this truly magnificent, ecologically diverse landscape.” In addition, 15% of the proceeds from any book sales that evening will also go to Muddy Sneakers.
