Book Lover’s Ball Oct. 11

On Friday, Oct. 11, from 6-10 p.m., Half the Gorge Sky will hold a benefit event at the Sunshine Mill Winery in The Dalles in support of literacy and girls’ education.

The event features Halelupe, a musical guest from Portland, bringing guitar virtuosity and powerful vocals together as she performs her soulful, emotional original songs.

After dinner, a silent and live auction will take place to benefit both The Dalles library expansion project and the Sacred Valley Project, which provides a path to higher education for talented indigenous girls from the far-flung mountain villages of Peru.

Auction items continue to accrue and will include unique experiences, gourmet dinners and handmade gifts of all kinds and for all budgets.

Tickets are $25 at Klindt’s Booksellers in The Dalles and Waucoma Bookstore in Hood River and at the door.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
