Sometimes things that are beautiful and true endure in the world…coalesce in the midst of what seems like unrelenting darkness to one crystalline time and place.
Here’s one such moment:
Jon Langford and Jean Cook will provide entertainment at the 21st Annual Antioch School Auction Gala on March 4, 2017.
This convergence makes me giddy. The Antioch School is important to me: I attended the school when I was a kid, and now my daughter is in fourth grade there. It’s the oldest democratic school in the country. (I’ve blogged about the school here.) The annual auction gala is how the school raises the majority of funds to provide scholarships. It’s a really fun evening, with wine, goodies, a silent auction and live auction with the most entertaining auctioneer I’ve ever seen.
And I’m a huge fan of Jon Langford and Jean Cook. Their music often provides the sonic backdrop for my home life, and I can’t believe they are coming to my town. Here’s a video of Langford and Cook playing one of my favorites.
In case you’re nearby and want to attend, you can purchase a ticket by visiting the school’s website.
There will also be an exhibit of Jon Langford’s artwork at the Emporium in Yellow Springs.
