    Kissing The Crown: Leigh Hancock (Replay)

    15/04/2019 Duración: 12min

    Due to the unfortunate events at the Notre Dame Cathedral today we felt a replay of this story from two years ago was appropriate. To be fifteen, in Paris, with the man you love: what could be better? Or worse? Leigh Hancock’s wanderlust began on a high school trip to Europe. It carried her from her humble roots in Hueytown, Alabama around the world (a couple of times), before landing her in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. Leigh’s obsession with stories fuels her work as teacher, grant writer and storyteller.
