Korean Community Invited to Participate in Holiday Event at Pebble Hill

Members of the East Alabama Korean community are invited to attend a free holiday event on Monday, December 2 from 5:30 to 7 PM. at Pebble Hill (101 S. Debardeleben Street) in Auburn.

This family event will include a tour of the historic Scott-Yarbrough House (1847) in holiday décor, apple cider and classic holiday treats, and a discussion of Truman Capote’s famous short story “A Christmas Memory.”

Children are invited to write and bring a 200-300 word story of their favorite Christmas memory to present to the group, and judges will award prizes to each child who shares a story. 

A Korean translation of “A Christmas Memory” is available at aub.ie/christmasmemorykorean. Guests are encouraged to read the short story in advance and participate in the brief discussion. An English version is available at aub.ie/achristmasmemory. Audio of Truman Capote reading "A Christmas Memory" is available at aub.ie/trumancapote. “A Christmas Memory” is an American holiday classic set in the rural South during the Great Depression and has been dramatized in many award-winning radio, television, and stage productions.   

The free event is sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and The Korea Corner in the Office of the Vice President for University Outreach.  

Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn. For more information about the event, contact Suhyun Suh at suhsuhy@auburn.edu or Rachel Naftel at rln0001@auburn.edu or call 334-844-4946.
