Uncle Terry’s Gift Ideas from WV Authors List 2015

Nigh on a decade ago, Terry McNemar, our former president who recently passed away, began an annual gift guide for books by West Virginia authors.  The last time we ran one on this blog, however, was 2011.  With his passing this year, we felt it was time to re-institute this annual tradition in his honor.  And as such, it's only fitting that Terry's books are #1 and #2 on the list.

So while you’re doing your holiday shopping, don’t forget to support these WV Writer, Inc. authors. And don’t forget to stop at your local bookstores: Tamarack, Taylor Books in Charleston, Empire Books & News in Huntington, the Open Book in Lewisburg, Four Seasons Books in Shepherdstown, Vandalia Press, Main Line Books in Elkins, …to name just a few.  Those are great places where you might find these books!

If you are a member of West Virginia Writers and your book is not listed here, please send it in immediately and we will get you added to the list.  Send those to wvwriterssecretary@gmail.com.  You may also send links to your own website.  We'll be happy to post them as well.

Thanks.

WVW Conference Vidcasts: Conference Entertainment Sampler

Continuing our vidcast series to whet appetites for the 2011 WV Writers Summer Conference, we present a two part sample of our conference entertainment. First up is a sample of the music of the amazing Pops Walker. He's a three-time conference entertainer as well as the composer of the music we use in the WV Writers Podcast. His albums can be found at CDBaby.com.

Next up is former president Eric Fritzius doing a passable channelling of Garrison Keillor in a loose parody of the News from Lake Wobegon, a.k.a. the News from Cedar Lakes. This was produced as part of the Friday Night Entertainment in 2010, which was themed as A West Virginia Writers' Home Companion.

Tune in tomorrow for a look at THIS year's Saturday Night Entertainment musicians, Doug and Telisha Williams.
