Friday, October 26th: Corner Cabaret Event – Tunisia: A November Story at 7:00 PM

The Corner Cabaret Series will present a special evening with local author, Gayla Marty.

In the fall of 1979, Gayla Marty was a Minnesota exchange student in Tunisia, making friends and learning to cook in a simple kitchen with different ingredients. Making a Thanksgiving meal took on new importance and meaning as political and personal events upset their lives. Join her for a reading from her work in progress, “Cooking in Paradise”.
