Woody Guthrie; My Father, My Partner with Nora Guthrie Saturday 06/30/2012 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM 4544 N Lincoln Ave - WEST Nora Guthrie is the daughter of Woody Guthrie and the Director of the Woody Guthrie Archives. For the last twenty years, she has worked with her father's collection to support ongoing research and to create new works from the vast legacy he left behind. In this program, she will recount her early recollections of family life which include family gatherings and hootenannies with musicians close to the family, Woody's hospitalization with Huntington's Disease, her recognition of her father's growing mythology with artists in the 1960's folk music revival, and the gradual transition to their present professional partnership. Her thoughts on Woody’s political, social and spiritual teachings, and how they come into play in today’s world, will be part of the conversation.
