    The Florence Festival of Books, which opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 27, has added a special event on Friday, September 26. Best-selling author Teresa Rhyne will appear in the theater at 7 p.m. Teresa will have a meet and greet and book signing open to the public at 6 p.m. in the lobby. Tickets for the event are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be divided between the Florence Area Humane Society and Florence Relay for Life.

    Teresa describes herself as a lawyer, writer, dog lover and breast cancer survivor (though definitely not in that order). She loves wine, books, coffee and dogs (still not in order) and loathes exercise, Christmas, and chocolate (probably in that order).

    Teresa travels internationally for keynote speeches and other presentations wherever an inspirational, humorous, cancer-surviving, dog-loving, pessimist-turned-reluctant-optimist, motivational speaker may be needed.

    The Emerald City Jazz Kings will open their 2014-15 season at the FEC on Saturday, October 11 with a matinee performance at 1:30 p.m. The concert features many of the original numbers recorded by Frank Sinatra and Count Basie in the 1960s.

    Frank Sinatra and Count Basie connoisseurs, two albums which cannot pass by without mention came from a few evenings of live recording in January and February of 1966 in the Copa Room at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Sinatra was headlining that week, with the Basie orchestra opening and backing him up. With music conducted and arranged by Quincy Jones, these star-studded evenings led to many definitive versions of songs readily associated with Frank and the Basie Orchestra.

    Children’s roles include Haylee Cole as Cossette, Nyah Vollmer as Gavroche, and Kayla Rose as Young Eponine. Paula Xochilth Garcia and Taylor Winona will perform in the children’s chorus.
