Author Events through the Tybee Arts Association

An amazing writer and man of travel, Jack Siler, will spend two extraordinary evenings on Tybee Island sharing his astonishing travels, experiences and writing career. He lives by the mantra that "travel and languages broaden our knowledge and experience," and has traveled from St. Louis to Taos to Sarasota to Paris and soon to Portugal. While in Savannah, he has agreed to a special, one-time, intimate lecture and a writer’s seminar at the Tybee Arts Association’s Jim Ingham Black Box Theater. The evenings are outlined below with reservations and ticket information.
