Preston Coiner Tribute this Sunday

Listen to 15 minutes of highlights from Preston's talk at our April Storytelling session.

Preston Coiner was a Belmont native, a Clark alum, a generous spirit and a masterful storyteller. He spun some yarns for us at the Monticello Road storytelling event this past April and we were fortunate enough to catch him on tape. We will hear some brief highlights of Preston from that afternoon and share many more recollections about the neighborhood at the Where I Live discussion this Sunday at C’ville Coffee.

Sponsored by the Historic Resources Committee and Celebrate 250, this event is a chance to listen, learn, and discuss the history of one of Charlottesville most interesting neighborhoods. What better way to celebrate this Belmont original than with an afternoon of storytelling?

See you there! Bring your stories, photos and curiosity.

Where I Live: Belmont will take place Sunday September 30 from 3-5 p.m. C’Ville Coffee is located at 1301 Harris Street, Charlottesville, VA.
