2. Poets on Stage a the Floyd Country Store: I and my fellow members of the Floyd Writers Circle will be swapping readings with members of the Southern Appalachian Writers Cooperative at the Floyd Country Store, Friday April 25 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Visiting SAWC writers are in town for a reading at Radford University, celebrating the posthumous publication of the late Rita Riddle, who was an English professor at RU and a member of SAWC. The event is free and open to the public. I hear that the visiting writers are looking forward to attending the famed Friday Night Jamboree later that evening. More about the event from blogger Fred First, who is also a SAWC member is HERE. You can read about the Floyd Writers Circle HERE.
