Hats Off! to John G. Hartness, publisher of Falstaff Books, who this month released We Are Not This – Carolina Writers for Equality. The anthology, a collection of thirty-one short stories, poems, and essays by North Carolina writers or writers who feel a strong tie to the Carolinas, was created as a response to HB2, the divisive “bathroom bill” passed by the NC General Assembly earlier this year. Proceeds from the sale of the anthology will be divided among NC-centric LGBTQ charities, non-profits, and lobbying organizations. The first group of organizations to receive funding will be Time Out Youth, Queen City Theatre Company, and EqualityNC.


Hats Off! to Katie Winkler whose adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic horror novel Frankenstein will enjoy its world premier production in the Patton Auditorium, Flat Rock Campus, Blue Ridge Community College, October 27-31. Winkler, who teaches English composition and British literature at the college, has been continually active with the college's drama department as an actor, director and writer. A fiction writer as well as a dramatist, she is co-representative for the NCWN in Henderson County along with member Patricia Vestal.


Hats Off! to Lucia Walton Robinson who contributed four poems, including "A Ghazal for Indiana's Bicentennial," to the September and October issues of Indiana Voice Journal. Some of her ancestors from New England, the Carolinas, and Virginia helped settle Indiana before and after statehood.
