Upcoming First Friday Authors

First Friday Author - October 5th 5-8 is Dr. William H. Littleton

A Ballad of Sixty-Six Days Charles Wesley at Frederica

This Ballad of Sixty-six Days was written as a tribute to the man who reportedly wrote 9000 poems and is considered the greatest hymnologist in the English language. Charles Wesley had no easy time on St. Simons, but it is hoped the Ballad will show him as a young man of conviction and honesty, also as one with whom to share a meal would have been a pleasure. Part I of the Ballad is informed by John Wesleys diaries and by the author s own experiences of life on St. Simons Island, such as being bitten by no-see-ums and watching herons and egrets fish for lunch. Part II derives from Charles Wesley s Journal covering the period of March 9, 1736 to May 12, 1736. Illustrations by Ed Cheshire.
