Hear stories tonight about the Wabash

TERRE HAUTE — Storyteller Jerry Hay is scheduled to bring to Terre Haute tonight his narrative journey down the Wabash River from its tiny headwaters to its confluence with the Ohio River.

Hay is scheduled to speak about  the river’s important role in Indiana’s history from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Girl Scout building, 1100 Girl Scout Lane, in Fairbanks Park.

He weaves into his presentation sometimes surprising and fascinating facts about early days along the river and some recent dramatic changes in its course.

Hay, a Terre Haute native, also has shared his knowledge and experience in books, including “Wabash River Guide Book” and “Beyond the Bridges.”

He also has served for years and by serving for years as “riverlorian” — a historian specializing in the nation’s rivers and riverboats — on the Delta Queen, American Queen and Mississippi Queen riverboats.

The free program is open to the public and is sponsored by Indiana Landmarks in conjunction with 2013 Year of the River.
