Public may read, listen at Giles House KRK August 11

Kentuckians Reading Kentuckians (KRK) is an annual event sponsored by The Giles Society to honor Kentucky writers. The public is invited to participate. Anyone who registers can read -- from their own work or the work ofany Kentucky writer -- subject to the time limit set by the Society.

This event started as a couple hours on a Sunday afternoon back in 2002 and has grown into an all-day affair with participants from near and far coming to Giles House for the day. Readings are held on the beautiful grounds of Giles House. It is usually hot, so dress accordingly and arrange to stay hydrated. Box lunches and drinks will be available for sale during the noon break, or feel free to bring your own cooler.

Janice Holt Giles wrote more than 20 books while living in Adair County and her work is still widely read.The Giles Society was started to preserve her legacy. We believe that she would be pleased to think of other writers' words being read at her beloved home.


DATE: August 11, 2007
PLACE: Giles House
TIME: 9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.

So, come join us, come read, come see Giles House. I hope to hear from you soon.

Jan Sparkman
