The Great Smoky Mountains Book Fair in Sylva was a big hit. Over 50 authors gathered in a church to meet readers, give talks and compare notes. My publishers, Milestone Press, shared a table with me.
I went to a talk on Sense of Place with Pam Duncan, Fred Chappell, Ron Rash and Vicki Lane. Lane was the only one who wasn’t born bred in the mountains. She came here in 1975. When the panel host asked everyone where home was, Chappell said “Wherever Susan (his wife) serves the meatloaf on a plate.”
