Today is Queen Dolly Parton’s birthday! Dolly has inspired me so much with her dedication to sending millions of books to children through her Imagination Library, her generosity, wise words, how hard working she is and that she’s never afraid to have a little fun!
The Graduate Hotel in Nashville is celebrating Dolly’s birthday with a week of festivities beginning Wednesday, January 19th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. This event will feature pop-ups from Pandy Cotton Candy, The Tilly Goose, The Cookie Cart, and a photo-worthy balloon arch installation by Rock Paper Scissors.
The celebrations will continue on Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 11:00am to 2:00pm with a family-friendly celebration partnering with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. There will be a live reading of the children’s book Sir Drake the Brave by author Joy Jordan-Lake and a clay craft led by illustrator Susan Eaddy. This event will include pop-ups from Pandy Cotton Candy, The Tilly Goose, and Frosted in Franklin. Tickets are $10 per family and the clay activity is $5. Grab a ticket here.
