Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Hooked on Bookfests, Part III: Hanover

On October 14, I’ll be in another bookfest, the Hanover Book Festival in Mechanicsville, VA. Check out the Hanover Writers Club website for more details. Here’s the schedule of events:

  • 8:30–9:00 Author Sign-in
  • 9:00–10:00 Writers Workshops
  • 10:15–10:35 Becky Mushko appearing as Ida B. Peevish
  • 11:00–11:45 Free Concert by Hearts Afire
  • 11:45–12:15 Austin Camacho: “Why We Love To Read Mysteries”
  • 12:15–1:00 Hearts Afire in Concert
  • 1:00–1:30 Linda Goodman, Storyteller
  • 1:30–2:00 John Conlee: “Writing Historical Fantasy”
  • 2:00–2:15 Contest Prize Winner Announcements
  • 2:15–2:45 Jim Morrison: “Researching the Impact of War on a Community”
  • 4:00 Auction Winners Announced
Plus, a couple dozen Virginia writers (many of them members of the Virginia Writers Club) will be present to sell and sign their books. JoAnn Liggan is the shaker and mover (and rock band member!) behind this fest.

This will be my third bookfest in three months—and fellow Lake Writer/Virginia Writers club board member Jim Morrison, who was in the previous two bookfests with me, will be in this one, too.

Looks like it’s going to be a fun day!
