Symposium features stories about water

Special to the Courier

The next program of the Texas Water Symposium will explore how water becomes embedded in narratives told about our everyday life and communities.
"Stories About Water: Narratives that Remind Us of Our Personal and Collective Connections with Water" will begin at 7 pm, Thursday, Nov. 12, in the ballrooms at the Floyd and Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center at Schreiner University.
Three storytellers will recount the ways in which water impacts the human experience with the aim of helping participants better understand why water remains such an important issue in our lives. Presenters will include:
• Dr. David Taylor, visiting assistant professor of Sustainability, from Stony Brook University
• Dr. Fred Stevens, retired Schreiner University professor of Biology
• Joe Herring Jr., Hill Country historian and columnist, and former Kerrville mayor
Dr. Charlie McCormick, Schreiner University provost and a folklore scholar will moderate the symposium.
The hour-long program, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by discussion with time for questions.
