The University of Charleston Builders will gather at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday for a book and author luncheon focusing on "Shadows and Mountains: Tales from the Dark Heart of Appalachia."
Jessie Grayson of Harts Creek and Ellen Thompson McCloud of Verdunville will share stories from their collaborations. An opportunity to meet the authors is at 11:30 a.m., with the luncheon being served at noon.
The authors were raised in Logan County. The mountainous terrain, clear streams, wildlife and deep woods inspire the themes of their stories.
The mission of the University of Charleston Builders is to fund special projects and scholarships and to promote the University to its greater Charleston community.
Membership in the University of Charleston Builders is not a requisite for attending the luncheons and author presentations. However, new members are always welcome.
The cost of the luncheon is $18.For more information, contact Jamie DeYoung at jamiedeyo...@ucwv.edu or call 304-357-4369.
