WASHBURN - Upper Peninsula based singer/storyteller Bill Jamerson will present a music and storytelling program about the Civilian Conservation Corps at the Washburn Public Library on Tuesday evening, September 17 at 6 pm. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Jamerson will share stories about the CCC, read excerpts from his novel, show a short video clip from his PBS film and sing original songs with his guitar. He has performed at CCC reunions around the country and at dozens of CCC built national and state parks. His presentation is as entertaining as it is important; as honest as it is fun. It's about people both ordinary and extra-ordinary, with stories of strength, wit and charm. Jamerson received the “CCC Educator of the Year Award” in 2017 from CCC Legacy based in Edinburg, VA.
