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.

Angie's Book Launch

Last Saturday, I attended Roanoke Public Library's launch for Angie Smibert's second book, The Forgetting Curve. I'd already read an advance reader copy of the dystopian YA novel in January and reviewed it here.

Barnes & Noble brought plenty of copies of The Forgetting Curve and her earlier book, Memento Nora, for sale.

Members of the SCBWI crit group (that I used to belong to) attended, along with people from all ages—including a few babies. 

 Before Angie read her first chapter, a local band played.

After Angie's reading, there was pizza, a drawing for prizes, more band music, and plenty of time for mingling.

A good time was had by all.
