ARTS & CULTURE EVENTS

Eat, Drink and Be Literary

Eat, Drink and Be Literary! is a program begun in 2016 by the Town of Hillsboro in partnership with the Hillsboro Preservation Foundation to expand and enhance the repertoire of events and activities hosted at Hillsboro’s Old Stone School and to contribute to the establishment of the high-quality “Hillsboro brand.” Modeled on the Chautauqua Movement tradition of intellectual inquiry and exploration, its mission is to bring culture, music, verse and performance to the community in a ‘salon’ experience at the venerable Old Stone School.

Each program is crafted to present stimulating and engaging evenings with writers, actors, artists, historians, performers and thought leaders in an inviting and intimate setting—leavened with delectable locally sourced and prepared food and drink. Often paired with other events, or presented as a topical series, the program strives for relevancy through the thoughtful exploration of current events and history, with thought-provoking talk, music and performance.
