The Bookery Celebrates Joe Hayes (Oct 4, 2009)

The Bookery in the old adobe on historic Mission Trail in the El Paso's Lower Valley hosted 200-plus fans to hear a storytelling by Joe Hayes. A rainy morning turned into a beautiful October Day in time for Joe to begin telling stories. Joe treated his audience with two of his "tall tales" and two in his special bilingual storytelling style. But before Joe told his stories, two groups from Efida Chavez Elementary School in East El Paso made a presentation to celebrate Joe and welcome him back to the Valley. Girl Scout Troop 158 performed their favorite story, "Mariposa, Mariposa," and the Moose Cheerleading Corps made a special cheer for Joe.
