Evelyn Allen Harper, shared with us a fun fact, one that is part of her inspiration behind her newest book’s title, Sweet Adeline.
She sang in a trio to work her way through Anderson College (now Anderson University). They bought them a car, made the itinerary, and then sent them out to represent the college over weekends. In the summer, they toured the country, arriving back in time to start the fall semester. The three of them still stay in touch, and spend time with each other even though they live in different states.
Evelyn continues to sing today, and one such singing group that she’s involved in, you guessed it, Sweet Adeline!
