Taking 'Songs from the Shelf'


Last updated 6/6/2023 at 11:12am

Inspiration for songs can come from a lot of places. For Central Oregon songwriters Lilli Worona, Mike Biggers, and Jim Cornelius, that inspiration often comes from the pages of books. All three mine literature and history for stories that they set to music.

They’ll share an hour of book-inspired music at Sisters Library’s “Songs from the Shelf,” on Saturday, June 17 at 3 p.m. at Sisters Fire District Community Hall.

From the temptations of the sirens in “The Odyssey” (from the sirens’ point of view) to shipwrecks off the coast of North Carolina, to a shooting in a Prohibition-era speakeasy in New York, the songwriters will share how they grab inspiration off the page and turn that inspiration into music.

Sisters Fire District Community Hall is located at 301 S. Elm St. in Sisters.
