Church Stories You Won’t Hear in Church
Historian C.W. (Bill) Lattin conducts a very special storytelling session and no denomination is spared! A donation of $20 will reward the listener with entrance into a world of stories from the past pertaining to Albion’s local churchgoers (and even a few ministers!).
According to Lattin, “The nature of some of this material can be described as ‘dishy.’ Many of these word of mouth tid-bits of local history have never been recorded in printed form” Lattin explains, which is why he is working on his book Trivial Tales. Lattin continues, “Because of the trivial nature of some of these ‘yarns’ no one in the past considered them of any real importance. However, they do give us a sense of the times in which they happened as well as the fact that human nature doesn’t really change that much over time.”
Funds raised will assist in making repairs to the church roof. Tickets available at Bindings Bookstore (28 W. Bank St., Albion), at the door on the evening of the event starting at 6 pm, or click here to purchase online.
