For more information con- tact The Quincy Literacy Of- fice at 283-6413 Featured Story Teller Mary Gay Ducey performs at Story Fest at 4 p.m. Gay Ducey is a storyteller who performs throughout the United States, Canada, and Ireland. She has appeared twice at the Nation- al Storytelling Festival and on Mister Roger's Neighborhood. She is also a children's librar- ian in Oakland, California. Ducey learned about sto- ries in the best way possible -- from family. Descended from Southern women who treasured a sassy mouth, she grew up in New Orleans with its rituals and play. She now lives in Berkeley. The Bay Area's shifting social land- scape and New Orleans time- less enchantments have formed an artist who relishes the diverse and the novel, but reveres the traditional place of stories in family and com- munity. She still can't resist stepping into any parade that passes by. Ducey is a storytelling edu- cator who has taught story- telling at several universi- ties, including the University of California at Berkeley. She was a commissioned artist at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History, where she presented a story of women in the American la- bor movement. That piece is a part of "Union Maid: Sto- ries from America's Women at Work." She is the co-au- thor of Spilt Milk: Tradition- al Tales of Mothers and Motherhood. Ducey is the former chair- person of the National Story- telling Association. She was the 2001 recipient of the Oracle Award for Distinguished Na- tional Service in Storytelling. The Berkeley Commission on the Status of Women named her one of the "Outstanding Women of Berkeley." She re- mains the artistic director of the Bay Area Storytelling Festival. Plumas Arts, with the gen- erous support of the James Irvine Foundation, has worked with local story- tellers and spoken word en- thusiasts to form Plumas Tale Spinner with groups that meet monthly in Quincy, Indian Valley and Portola. The Plumas Tale Spinners have developed this family friendly storytelling event designed to inspire and en- tice a broader interest in lo- cal cultural programs and the spoken word in partnership with Plumas County Literacy and Sierra Farmstead. Arts council grant brings rnusi00 to Plurnas Plumas Arts is delighted to present The Waybacks in con- cert at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy on Saturday, Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. The Waybacks repertoire is touched by Memphis soul, honky-tonk, Parisian swing, classical music, vintage blue pop and original tune penned and performed by songwriters and singers James Nash and Warren Hood.

At the door all tickets, if the show is not sold out, will be $25. The performance is being made possible in part by a music-industry antitrust settlement, the California Arts Council, a state agency, as well as the National En- dowment for the Arts, a feder- al agency. Plumas Arts was one of several dozen music- presenting organizations to be awarded this grant. This funding also brought SambaDa' to perform-to a very enthusiastic crowd at the Oct. 9 Mountain Harvest Festival. It will also bring a week-long residency of the Shasta Taiko traditional Japanese Drum group with programs in our schools as well as community perfor- mances in May of 2011. " "The Waybacks have been on our Wish List for some time now, but their artist fee kept them out of our reach," explains grant author and Plumas Arts Director Rox- anne Valladao. "Thd Califor- nia Arts Council grant made it'a possibility and we are ever so grateful. The grant al- lowed us to keep ticket prices affordable and the acoustics at the Town Hall Theatre will no doubt make this a very memorable show." "The band has been recom- mended to Plumas Arts by :: :} .......... iil!: : The Waybacks, left to right, bass player Joe Kyle Jr., founding singer, songwriter and guitarist James Nash, drummer Chuck Hamilton and fiddler and mandolinist Warren Hood bring their own brand of stellar musicianship and self described "acoustic mayhem" to the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 13. Photo submitted most of the best musicians in the county and countless mu- sic lovers-basically anyone who has ever seen thmper: form. They are masterful mu- sicians held in high esteem by some of the best players in any genre. We also picked them because they perform in a diversity of styles of music that we knew would appeal to a wide range of ages and in- terests. I do not think 1 would be out of line to say that any one who loves good music will love The Waybacks." League voter ed a success "It was a successful season of voter education." That is the sentiment of members of the League of Women Voters of Plumas County. Election forums were held in Quincy and Graeagle for the District 5 supervisor runoff; in Porto- la for the city council race and in Quincy again for a re- view of the propositions and the U.S. Congressional Dis- trict 4 election. The election forums this year included assistance from Feather River College politi- cal science students. The stu- dent volunteers were recruit- ed and coordinated by profes- sor Katie Desmond. They reg- istered voters and learned about the LWV methods of de- bate organization. The next meeting of the LWV of Plumas County will be Thursday, Nov. 4, at 5:30 p.m. at the Work Connection in East Quincy. Guest speak- er for the evening will be Ann Krinsky of Plumas CASA. The local Court Appointed Special Advocate program trains volunteers to represent the best interests of children who are wards of the court. "We hope that Plumas resi- dents who are interested in this volunteer opportunity will attend our meeting to learn more about CASA," said League member Joyce Scroggs. Local students are remind- ed Nov. 19, is the deadline for the League's essay contest. For more information, call Scroggs at 283-0795.
