We’re excited to announce that the Bluefield Library is starting up a new book club! We will read “Mama’s Shoes” by local southwestern Virginia author Rebecca Elswick. Rebecca will be there to lead the discussion about her book and answer any questions. Join us on Tuesday, May 15th at 6:30pm. Stop by the library to get a copy of the book “Mama’s Shoes.”
Rebecca Elswick lives in the mountains of southwestern Virginia where she was born, the daughter and granddaughter of coal miners. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in many journals and anthologies among them Deep South, Still the Journal, and Drafthorse. Her debut novel, Mama’s Shoes (2011) was published by Writer’s Digest, the result of winning a contest. No Stopping Her was published in 2015 by Gemma Media’s Open Door Series for Adult Literacy. Rebecca is a mother, writer, and lifelong teacher. She has an MFA from West VA Wesleyan College and currently directs the Writing Center at Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia.
