And in Local News…Get out your Palouse-leaf notebook

String beans or String Bands? It's all ripe at our Farmer's Market in Moscow, Idaho, Land of the Double entundra!

At last Saturday’s Moscow’s Farmer’s Market I got re-acquainted with Ryan Urie, a lad half my age with twice the talent. He leads a critique group along with Tanya Gale called the Palouse Writers'[ League, and I learned of this upcoming event. A Word with You Press(that would be moi and vouz) share with the Palouse Writers’ League the simple mission: Save the World. And you can do it in the company of other wild/tame writers and tame/wild animals on August 15th.
