This musical tells the story of the family left behind and the cost of war to those who are not on the front lines. Music by Jenny Giering, Lyrics by Adam Gwon, Book by Karen Hartman.

Tri0: book-song-art

One book is given to both a songwriter and a visual artist. They write a song and create a work of art inspired by the book they read fulfilling their TRIO. Each TRIO is installed as part of an exhibit debuting at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance and travels to museums, galleries, and literary events throughout the following year. Created by Shari Smith.

Sarah has had the pleasure of being a songwriter with TRIO for the past three years and is very proud to introduce her latest TRIO song "OLIVE YOU" inspired by WALLAND written by Andrea Thome.
