BOOK NOTES: Cat Pleska and Frank Larnerd to appear at Drug Emporium Saturday April 26
The book, penned by 28 West Virginia writers and poets, has been described as a delightful compilation of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
“This anthology represents the variety and diversity of our state’s writers, with all the contributions being from the West Virginia Writers organization. Despite the different genres being showcased, I think the end result is a cohesive, flowing book—with writings possessing the emotional response that resonates from our mountain attitude,” Cat said.
Pleska teaches writing at West Virginia State University, where she is also the director of the WVSU Writing Center. Cat is an essayist for West Virginia Public radio, with over 40 essays aired to date. She also is a regular writer for Wonderful, West Virginia Magazine. She is a sixth generation West Virginian and lives in Scott Depot with her husband, Dan. Her daughter, Katie, lives in nearby Saint Albans.
Joining Pleska will be award-winning West Virginia author Frank Larnerd, who will be personalizing copies of his new anthology, “Hills of Fire: Bare-Knuckle Yarns of Appalachia” and others.
Although he is best known for his unique blend of traditional Appalachian folklore and unsettling horror, Frank has also published numerous science fiction and crime stories over the years. He lives in Putnam County.
Frank also studies writing at West Virginia State University, where he has received multiple awards for fiction and non-fiction.
