Jack Prather's news

It is good to hear from Jack Prather who lives in Henderson County NC. He is an author we are proud to have as a member. I have read some of his forthcoming book about notable women of NC and I recommend it highly. See his news below:

Despite a tough personal and health year punctuated by a lengthy recuperative sabbatical, I'm now in very good condition and spirits, thanks to turning lemons into a pitcher of lemonade.

My latest (seventh) book and the second in a series about 'Notable' North Carolinians will be out in January (yippee!). My editor Rick Rickerson, author of The Five-Minute Linguist and former chair of the Linguistics Department at the College of Charleston, completed his work on the manuscript yesterday; and it's now in the hands of my designer, Chris Condrey.

More on Six Notable Women of North Carolina will be forthcoming following publication.

Coffee with the Poets and Writers Schedule for 2014

The Hayesville/Murphy Coffee with the Poets and Writers will not be held in January and February because we can't depend on the weather. This past week has been proof of that. As most things slow down and stop these two months in the mountains, we can stay in and compose more poems and work on our writing.

We will meet 10:30 a.m. March 12 at Blue Mountain Restaurant for our first meeting of 2014.
Netwest member, Deanna Klingel from Cashiers will be featured. Bring something for Open Mic and plan to stay for lunch.
Most of the schedule was filled at our December meeting, but we still have a few places left if anyone wants to sign up as a second reader or for August. Contact me, to be put on the schedule.
See the present CWPW Schedule below.

March 12 -- Deanna Klingel
April 9 -- Brenda Kay Ledford
May 14 -- Lucy Gratton and Joan Howard
June 11 -- Estelle Rice and Staci Bell
July 9 -- Linda Smith
August 13 --
September 10 -- Carole Thompson
October 8 -- Mary Mike Keller and Bob Grove
November 12 -- Karen Holmes and Paul Schofield

See you in March.
