Glenda Barrett and Bob Grove read their work at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC on Thursday, August 18. This event was sponsored by the North Carolina Writers' Network-West.

These two terrific writers deighted the audience with poetry and prose. A lot of their work was humorous and held everyone's attention. It was an enjoyable literary event.

Her poetry chapbook, WHEN THE SAP RISES, was published by Finishing Line Press and available at: Her writing has appeared in many publications including: "Woman's World," "Farm and Ranch Living," "Chicken Soup for the Soul," "Journal of Kentucky Studies," "Mary Ann's Farm Magazine," "Kaleidoscope," and many other journals.

Bob received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Kent State University and his Master of Science in Teaching degree from Florida Atlantic University. He has taught courses in English, journalism, and creative writing. He was formerly at TV program host in West Palm Beach and is a popular guest speaker and reader.
