SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Noted storyteller, Dolores Hydock, will bring her presentation, “It Could Happen! Stories of Hope and Possibility” to the B.B. Comer Memorial Library’s SouthFirst Bank Adult Lecture Series “These Are Our Stories” this Wednesday.

Hydock, originally from Pennsylvania, is an actress and story performer whose work has been featured in a variety of concerts, festivals, and special events throughout the United States. She is a touring artist for the Alabama State Council of the Arts, a speaker for the Alabama Humanities Foundation, and a member of the Southern Order of Storytellers. She lives in Birmingham, Alabama and has a following from all over the State of Alabama and beyond.

“The stories may be about the larger than life or the seemingly insignificant, but you don’t have to hope that she will tell a good story, and there is no possibility that she will tell a bad story! Almost as good as hearing her stories will be watching her body langauge and marveling at her total recall as she relates whatever sagas she decides to relate. Only one thing is certain about listening to stories from Dolores – you won’t be disappointed,” said Tracey Thomas, the director for the library.

The Hightower Refreshment Room opens at 11:00 a.m. for food, fellowship, and fun. Participants are invited to bring a sandwich and enjoy the desserts and beverages co-sponsored by the Coosa Valley Medical Center’s Hickory Street Cafe. The program will begin at 12:00 p.m. in the Harry I. Brown Auditorium. The brown bag lecture series is sponsored by SouthFirst Bank. For more information, call (256) 249-0961 or email
