In a year and one day from today on July 2, 2013, I will be giving a slide show book talk on Rock Springs Park as part of the West Virginia State Archives & History Lecture Series. The program, held in the Culture Center in Charleston, WV, will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. More details to come.
Information about the series can be found at http://www.wvculture.org/history/workshops.html. The link includes images and videos of past lectures. I would recommend viewing Bob Barnett's talk as he also wrote about West Virginia's northern panhandle in his memoir, Growing Up in the Last Small Town: A West Virginia Memoir.
