Teton County Library screens Jen Tennican's new film during "Sunday at the Coach"

On Friday, June 3, the Teton County Public Library in Jackson presents "Sunday at the Coach" from 6-7 p.m. 

Ever experienced "church," high risk music or the Christine Chapel? Enjoy an evening of true stories told live by the Stagecoach Band and Sunday night regulars, who have been playing, dancing and toe-tapping at this colorful saloon for 42 years. Watch a sneak preview of local filmmaker Jen Tennican's The Coach: An American Crossroads. Fun finger food and beverages provided. Audience members are encouraged to bring Coach memorabilia and stories to share. Location: Ordway Auditorium. Free. Adult Humanities Coordinator, Oona Doherty, 733-2164 ext. 135,

Jen's film, Highway 22 Revisited, just won the Wyoming Short Film Competition:

Documentary filmmaker Jennifer Tennican uses an iconic western watering hole, the Stagecoach Bar, as a lens to view seventy years of history and societal change in Wilson, Wyoming. The problem is the only thing people want to talk about is the night that Bob Dylan supposedly played at the bar. Repeatedly sidetracked by this story, she goes in search of the truth - did he or didn't he? Is the story real or an urban legend? Join her on her quest to resolve the mystery.
