A Poet’s Pilgrimage On the Wabash and Erie Canal

In this new work, Indianapolis author and storyteller Liza Hyatt draws from family history records describing the lives of her Irish immigrant great-great-grandmothers. Tracing their journey from 19th century Ireland to pioneer life on the Wabash and Erie and the Whitewater Canal, Hyatt braids together one story from three strands. She inter-weaves her great-great grandmother’s stories with her own story of how rediscovering these strong women changed her life. To further honor her heritage, Hyatt weaves Celtic harp accompaniment into her performance in the tradition of Irish bards. A fundraising program brought to you to help the Corning Irish Heritage Center raise money for the purpose of preserving our historic buildings and Irish Heritage. Tickets: Adults $10, children ages 3 to 15, $5.
