Congratulations to the first six writers to be inducted into the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame! Inductees included James Still and Robert Penn Warren—two of the University Press’s published authors, as well as William Wells Brown, Harriette Arnow, Harry Caudill, and Elizabeth Madox Roberts.
At the induction ceremony last night, Kentucky writers and readers alike gathered at the Carnegie Center to celebrate the achievements of the inductees. Contemporary writers shared a piece from each of the six writers honored. George Ella Lyon read one of James Still’s poems, “I Shall Go Singing.” Listen to the reading and enjoy some pictures below from the inaugural event.
Remember we are giving away a book from one of the thirteen Hall of Fame nominees this coming Wednesday! Enter your name today for a chance to win!
