May 20, 21 I will be in Hendersonville, NC for the Blue Ridge Bookfest held annually at Blue Ridge Community College. Bill Ramsey who heads up the event says it is going to be one of the best ever.
Seven of us will host a panel discussion - Voices from Echoes Across the Blue Ridge - with panelists Jayne Jaudon Ferrer, Rosemary Royston, Nancy Simpson, Lana Hendershott, Nancy Purcell, and JC Walkup giving their thoughts and advice on publishing and Echoes Across the Blue Ridge, anthology published by Winding Path Publishing for NCWN West.
Ann B. Ross, author of the famous Julia series, is special guest of honor at the reception Friday evening. Bill says they plan a dramatization of one of her books. I might have to wear my mask because of the perfume in the room, but I plan to be there.
The bookfest is free to the public. Look for the Netwest table and take home a copy of Echoes across the Blue Ridge, signed by all of our panelists. I hope to see you there. You might also want to pick up a copy of Now Might as Well be Then, my poetry chapbook.
So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca
