How writer Garrison Keillor adds time to his nest egg.
I saw one of my novels at a yard sale last week, and it appeared to have been used as a coaster.

Before Sara M. Robinson became a poet, she was a chemist! Here's PART ONE of Martha Woodroof's interview with Sara at WMRA.org, "Breaking Through the Painted Ceiling."

Sara M. Robinson's new book of ekphrastic poetry, Sometimes the Little Town, featuring over 100 photographs of Elkton, Virginia, townsfolk, was released Sunday, February 14.

Sara Robinson's father, Hobby Robinson, was one of the most important photographers of the 20th century to be so little well-known, at least outside the Shenandoah Valley of central Virginia. He chronicled over three generations of Elkton townsfolk, compiling and self-publishing nine books. Using his vast collection of photographs, his own and those he obtained, he gave us a people and a place. SOMETIMES THE LITTLE TOWN is Sara's gift of ekphrastic poetry inspired by the portraits in her father's collection. And like her father's work as a photographer, Sara's poetry is a tribute to little towns everywhere. 

SOMETIMES THE LITTLE TOWN is a 'loving waltz of poetry and photographs of mid-twentieth century life in Elkton, Virginia," says Martha H. Woodroof, WMRA Public Radio, Producer of The Spark, author of Small Blessings.

Hobby Robinson's photos have been donated to The Heritage Museum in Dayton, Virginia. On Sunday, February 21 at 2pm, Sara Robinson will be reading from her new book as part of an exhibit of Hobby's work. All book sales from the publisher's website are being directed to the museum's online store in an effort to support the work they are doing to digitize the Hobby Robinson collection.

Upcoming author events:
Feb 21 - The Heritage Museum, 2pm - Dayton, VA
Feb 28 - Noon Whistle Pottery, 2pm - Stanardsville, VA
Mar 16 - VA Festival of the Book, 6pm - Charlottesville, VA
Apr 23 - Solace Studios, 1pm - Elkton, VA

"...the average American listens to about 4 hours of audio daily. In contrast, the podcast listener listens to 6 hours daily. People listen to a lot more audio because they’re able to take interesting programming with them in their cars, onto public transportation, to the gym, on walks, doing gardening, etc...."

"People are interested in listening to news, perspectives, current events, comedy, and sports. Those have been the early wins for podcasting...."
