June 2010 Meeting

The Roanoke Valley Branch of the National League of American Pen Women met on Wednesday, June 2, at Mama Maria's in Salem.

The program was an update on member activities.

Becky Mushko, Vice President, chaired the meeting.

Elena DeRosa reported that she is nearing completion of her manuscript. Her memoir should be ready for submission in the next few months.

Mildred Sandridge, currently a student at Hollins University, said an independent study with Professor Jeanne Larsen was invaluable in assisting her with her book, which is a multi-generational work.

Ethel Born reported that her nonfiction book, From Horse 'n Buggy to Hi Tech, which is about the rural postal service in Virginia, will be presented to the postal society later this month.

Meg Hibbert, a guest, noted that she is writing steadily for an online magazine and is editor of The Salem Times-Register and The New Castle Record.

Becky Mushko reported that she has participated in numerous book readings and author events in order to promote her book, Ferradiddledumday.

Margaret DuBois has been working hard to create her arts of oil, pastel and enamels. Her work was for sale recently at the Roanoke Sidewalk Art Show.

The group will take a hiatus and will meet again in September.
