Charleen,
If it is convenient, please come to my reception on Friday, December 4 at 7:00 at the City Lights
Book Store in Sylva. The occasion is the "official release" of my DVD of my play, "Nance Dude."
However, I am hoping the reception may also be an opportunity to talk about "all things Appalachian."
Please come if you can.
Gary
