• 'Sj' Hylton LeHoven to read from her new book – 'My Life As A Mule' – in Athens

Thursday, Jan. 10, 5-7 p.m.

In a five star review on Amazon, Claire Morris-Dobie posted, “It’s tough to pin down [LeHoven's] 'Mule' to a specific audience. I loved it and so did our 9-year-old grandson. It’s entertaining and educational on so many levels and for ages 8 to 80.”
Both the author and illustrator Jocelyne Champagne Shiner graduated from Bearden High School in West Knoxville in 1978. They maintained contact through the years and were thrilled to be able to collaborate on this book.
"My Life As A Mule" is available through Amazon and at the book readings and signings. Visit LeHoven's website www.sjlehoven.com for more information. The event is free, and  refreshments  will be served.

• 2nd Annual Southern Whiskey Festival

Saturday, Jan. 12, 6-9 p.m.

“Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.” – Haruki Murakami

Tennessee is known the world over for our music and hospitality. And our whiskey. The Volunteer State has been a leader in spirits distillation throughout our nation’s history. That includes the time before, during, and after Prohibition. Our pride in craftsmanship and our spirit of independence led Tennesseans to make some of the world’s finest whiskey and some of the nation’s most sought after moonshine. And it drives us to this day. Today, Tennessee distillers are crafting distilled spirits as diverse as the music born in the state. From blues to bluegrass and from vodka to Tennessee whiskey, Tennessee distillers are bringing our innovative and legendary spirits to our communities and the world.

The Tennessee Whiskey Trail is made up of about 30 distilleries across the state. These distilleries range from small, boutique-style operations to well-known distilleries that have been making legendary Tennessee whiskey for generations.

During our unique Evening of Whiskey, you can travel the entire Tennessee Whiskey Trail and sample wares from more than 25 distilleries. Products will be available for sampling and for purchase!

The evening also includes ongoing mixology classes provided by Old Forge Distillery.

Tickets are $49 online in advance, or $60 the day of the event. Proceeds benefit L5 Foundation, serving the needs of area cancer patients.
