Join Us in Celebrating Nora Percival's 100th Birthday!
High Country Writers
will be celebrating one of our own this month as our beloved member Nora Percival turns 100. Nora has had a long career as
an editor and newspaper person. At age 87 she published her first memoir and has published 5 books to date. The celebration
will take place on October 23rd at 10am at Watauga County Public Library in Boone. It is a pot-luck luncheon so don’t
forget to bring a dish!
This will be the only party celebrating Nora’s
centennial since her family is scattered across the globe and coordinating schedules was not an easy task. Many of her
family and friends will be in attendance, folks we have heard so much about over the years. Now will have the opportunity
to meet them in person and compare stories! Please take this opportunity to join us as we pay tribute to one who has given
so much of herself to High Country Writers. Bring extra food, we are expecting a huge turn-out!
See you all at the Watauga County Library on October 23rd.
