Join us for an evening of friendly camaraderie, delicious food and drinks, and live music. Our annual Gala & Benefit Auction will take place Saturday, June 2 from 5–8 p.m. You’ll help support the Folk School’s programs by purchasing fine craft, art and other unique items donated by talented friends of the school during our live and silent auctions.
So let me preface this blog entry with the fact that I grew up reading comic books (or as I would have argued adamantly at one point—graphic novels), and much to my wife’s chagrin I still have several subscriptions to this day. My father grew up reading comics and he passed them on to me. I read his Uncle Scrooge, Batman, Dick Tracy, Lone Ranger, MAD, Superman and other Atomic Age comics until they literally fell apart. For good or bad that set me on a path of buying and collecting thousands of comics.
“The best parts about the Folk School are the community you feel for the week, and getting to learn something you couldn’t learn anywhere else,” says Pattie Bagley, resident artist in Basketry and Gourd Craft, Brooms, and Chair Seats.
