Our very own Gail Adams

Glenn Taylor and I were among Gail Adams' Morgantown fans who made the trek to Buckhannon this past Sunday evening to hear her read at Wesleyan. We even got to have dinner with her! Gail is, as Glenn said, "the real deal," and it was a pleasure to listen to her stories and her wisdom about writing ("keep reading!"). And, as with poetry, it's possible to listen in Gail's stories for runs of iambs and for consonant and vowel patterns. Quite simply: she has a great ear—and good writing, as she knows, is about its sounds.

Before heading home, Glenn and I stopped at the Buckhannon Dairy Queen. Pretty awesome sign, huh? And the sky... yep... that's awesome too.
