A Community Building Event.

Our Black Fly Story Hours have been community builders and wonderful fund-raisers. Thank you to the 80+ story tellers, and all the audience members who have made every event memorable over the past four years.

Mindful that we share responsibility to maintain the health of the general public, we postponed Black Fly Story Hour of March 27th, until a date yet to be announced.

October 25, 2019 – Black Fly Story Hour #9 was another sold out success. Thornton Wilder Center for the Arts YouTube Channel
