A Welsh Hundred/Marc Stengel selected for Southern Festival of Books 2009

A Welsh Hundred: Glimpses of Life in Wales will be a featured book at this year's Southern Festival of Books, 9-11 October 2009, at Legislative Plaza in Nashville, Tenn. Although the writer's session devoted to this book of translations from the Welsh has not yet been scheduled, updates will be forthcoming – both on this blog and at the Humanities Tennessee website for the festival.

Stengel invited to join FiledBy site for published writers and authors

With the 21 July 2009 release of A Welsh Hundred: Glimpses of Life in Wales, I'm pleased to report my new membership in the FiledBy online community for published writers and authors.
