The Storey County Library’s annual fundraiser November 1st at Piper’s Opera House was a tremendous success.  Home Means Nevada, performed by McAvoy Layne and Shiloh, was a delight to all with preshow entertainment provided by Le Cirque Vagabond and the Storey County Middle School choral ensemble led by Amanda Eddy.  Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the night’s success, and especially the Marshall Mint, Barrick Gold Corp., Community Chest of Nevada, the Old Corner Bar, Piper’s Opera House, Sundance Books and Music. 

(Home Means Nevada celebrates the history of our state in a 1-hour show with humor and music. There are parties, and then there is NV150. Come celebrate with us!

With bookstores disappearing from our national landscape, our libraries, “the peoples’ bookstores,” are becoming more vital, and as teaching history is becoming more challenging in the digital age, it makes perfect horse sense to present a musical history of Nevada’s 150 years of statehood in our libraries.

“Home Means Nevada” is an up-beat, humorous hour-long story of Nevada as told by Mark Twain (McAvoy Layne) with music from Shiloh, (Julie Machado & Tim Gorelangton), music that gives Twain’s words wings.)
