Ed McClanahan and George Singleton

Ed McClanahan and George Singleton - MHLF 2016

How awesome is it to be in the presence of two living legends at the same time?  Pretty awesome.  This year’s Mountain Heritage Literary Festival, held this past weekend at Lincoln Memorial University, featured an amazing staff including these two maniacs:  Ed McClanahan (author of THE NATURAL MAN, FAMOUS PEOPLE I HAVE KNOWN, A CONGRESS OF WONDERS, and MY VITA, IF YOU WILL among others) and George Singleton (author of THE HALF-MAMMALS OF DIXIE, BETWEEN WRECKS, CALLOUSTOWN and many others).   Ed was honored with this year’s Lee Smith Award to recognize his lifetime of good representation of Appalachia to the wider world.
