Rema Keen

Rema Keen is a writer and performance/teaching artist who graduated from Virginia Intermont College with degrees in English Literature and Theater.

She has performed in a number of regional and national theaters including The Barter Theatre in historic Abingdon, Virginia, where she trained for four years in the esteemed acting and fellowship program. Keen has also performed with Ballet for Young Audiences in New York City, Actors Guild of Lexington, KY and with Pleiades Theater Company based in Louisville, KY.

Keen received most of her training in storytelling theater and oral history collection while touring with Appalshop’s Roadside Theater, a national touring ensemble based in Whitesburg, KY. She toured with Roadside Theater nationally for 4 years as a writer and performer, organizing and conducting Arts in Education residencies and storytelling workshops with adults and children.

Rema has co-written a successful and wonderfully well loved play, TEDDY’S PIECE, about the life of her Grandmother, Teddy, who lived in Raven, VA. in the Red Ash Coal Camp. Rema is from Buchanan County and currently lives in Abingdon, Va.

Deb Linkous

With few books in the house and zero trips to the library, in her formative years Deb Linkous collected stories by listening and observing. That early skill is deep-rooted! While Deb has never been caught stealing a story, she has adopted (and sometimes gently adapted) ones that she found abandoned and begging for rescue.

Deb has told stories at several Roanoke libraries, all branches of the Tazewell County Public Library, Crab Orchard Museum, Mercer Mall’s center court, and wherever else she found a welcoming audience.

Her first printed book, Job Untangled, a Biblical commentary for ordinary people, will be available this summer through Amazon, as an e-book as well as hard copy.
