ICC Polk Center and Tryon Fine Arts Center will present a workshop with NPR contributor and one of New York’s most beloved storytellers, Faye Lane Friday, Jan. 11 at 1:30 p.m.

“Tell and Write Your Own Story” is a free interactive workshop encouraging people to tell their extraordinary stories. Lane’s Texas family, a father who was a Navy sailor and a mother who owned a beauty shop, gave rise to a rich fabric of stories and community. In this workshop, Lane will create an inspiring opportunity for participants to share their own stories and learn about each other.

The workshop takes place Friday, Jan. 11 from 1:30  – 3 p.m. at Isothermal Community College’s Polk Center in Columbus. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Please call 828-894-3092 to reserve your space.

Lane will perform her “Beauty Shop Stories” at the Tryon Fine Arts Center at 8 p.m. that same evening. The show has received high praise including from New York Magazine who declared, “She had them gobbling from the palm of her hand… they were howling, crying, falling in love with her.
