Northwest Mississippi Community College’s first “Author Rodeo Round-up” on March 29 was successful and event organizers plan to make it an annual event, according to Maggie Moran, director of Learning Resources.
The event was held at the R.C. Pugh Library. Twenty-four local authors were on hand to participate in a book signing at the library.
The event kicked off with a panel discussion of local authors, including Julie Cantrell of Oxford; Northwest Instructor Katherine King and her sister Margaret King; Saltillo poet Patricia Neely-Dorsey; children’s author Arthur Avant of Senatobia and Northwest Webmaster Ray Sharpe, who has published five books.
“Over and over, I was told that the authors were so happy to have a place to meet and chat with fellow authors in the area,” Moran said. She said that she got a lot of positive feedback and some suggestions for making the event bigger next year.
The R.C. Pugh Library is located on the Senatobia campus. There are libraries on each of Northwest’s campuses including the DeSoto Center and the Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center in Oxford. For more information about the Division of Learning Resources, visit the website at www.northwestms.edu.
