2015 Aunt Het Fall Festival
October 3, 2015
Who is Aunt Het?
She was created by Fountain Inn native, Robert Quillen, an internationally-known humorist and syndicated writer and founder of The Fountain Inn Tribune (today it is known simply as The Tribune Times). It was through his wit and his love of the pen that Aunt Het came to life from the late 1920’s through the late 1940’s. Robert Quillen declared, “There is no original Aunt Het”. She was a woman of Quillen’s imagination, though perhaps every community has it’s own Aunt Het - a woman who observes and reflects on what is going on around her. Aunt Het could have been anyone’s next door neighbor. She was the nice motherly type, pure-at-heart and always ready to freely speak her mind.
