Appalachian Literature Collection

TALKING TO MYSELF 9 October 2015 Yesterday afternoon, Ernie and I were invited to attend the dedication of "The Appalachian Literature Collection" at the Licking Valley Campus Library/ Maysville Technical and Community College in Cynthiana. It was a fine event, made even more special because Cynthiana native Anne Caudill delivered the dedication remarks. Anne is the widow of the acclaimed Appalachian author and activist, Harry Caudill. Brilliant and articulate at age 91, she charmed her audience. If you have an opportunity to meet her or hear her speak, do not pass it up. Congratulations also to my friend Sherry Chandler who was awarded the Licking Valley Literary Prize for Poetry.
