Hats Off! to Christine Arvidson, who, along with Scot Pope and Julie E. Townsend, edited Reflections on the New River: New Essays, Poems and Personal Stories (McFarland, 2015). This collection gathers more than thirty original works of prose and poetry expressing the contributors love for and relationships with the New River. Contributors include both luminaries such as Joseph Bathanti and Clyde Egerton to new writers with things to say about this fascinating river. Reflections on the New River contributors will be featured at Appalachian State's Summer Author Series this year.
