Morrison Public Library’s 4th annual Hear Tell Storytelling Fest will be held Saturday, March 3 at 10 a.m.

According to library director Bonnie Davis, the topic will be A Southern Waters Tribute. The event will feature author Ria Baker, who is co-author of “Under the Lake,” a book featuring historic images and stories of life along the Caney Fork River before the building of the dam in the late 1930s. 

Baker is also author of “You Don’t Have to be an Eagle to Fly,” and was named Tennessee Press Association’s best humor columnist in 2000.  Baker served as the mayor of Alexandria for seven years.    

“Under the Lake” chronicles four years of research, and will be available for purchase. The 9 x 12-inch hardback book is $40 each.

Davis ask visitors to bring vintage photos of folks enjoying bodies of water near your home to display and share with others.

The Morrison Public Library is located at 138 West Main Street in Morrison, with hours of operation being Monday through Friday 1 – 5 p.m.

The phone number is 931-635-2060.
