I can’t help but shout out when local writers get their works published. It’s so satisfying to know that it really happens.
Susan Marsh will be reading from and signing her memoir, A Hunger For High Country, at 7 p.m. on December 11, in the Valley Bookstore. I’ve known Susan for more than twenty years, having spent a great deal of time with her in various iterations of a writing group. Having read and critiqued sections of this work, I know that it conveys her love of the country just out her backdoor. This book proves that knowing your inner and outer landscape is essential to creating a compelling and passionate narrative. I am sure it will be well-sprinkled with political observations of her time with the Forest Service. Susan promises chocolate as a bribe to get listeners/buyers to the bookstore. I don’t think that is necessary! We should be bringing Susan treats. A member of the Jackson Hole Writers board of directors, she will be our conference resident faculty for her second year.
A past participant in the Writers Conference, Cate Cabot also has a signing for her book, Uncharted, the following day at the Valley Bookstore, from 5-7 p.m.
