Author Talk | Paul Dellinger

Rural Retreat Public Library

Join us on Tuesday, February 19 at 6:30pm for an evening with local writer Paul Dellinger. 

Paul Dellinger is a retired newspaper reporter, having worked on a service newspaper in the Army and at The Roanoke Times in a variety of coverage areas for more than 40 years. During that time, he began submitting stories to fiction magazines and book anthologies. Many of them are collected in “Mr. Lazarus and Other Stories,” his second book (after the non-fiction “Don’t Look Up!”, co-authored by Danny B. Gordon, about Wytheville’s late 1980s UFO flap). He has done two other collaborations, “The Sky-Riders” (with Mike Allen) and “Fuzzy” (with Tom Angleberger), as well as “The Secret Invasion,” a book set at a science-fiction convention in Roanoke. As a youngster, he spent many happy hours watching weekend western movies and one result of that is his most recent book, “Gunfight at Gower Gulch,” which starts and ends in 1950s Hollywood but flashes back to the historic west. He and his wife, Maxine, live in Wytheville.

You can find all these books plus some containing his short stories by typing in his name on the Amazon site.

Wednesday Book Club

Wythe County Public Library

A book club for those who read the best of the best.
The librarians at WCPL have put together a fantastic reading list that is full of New York Times best-selling authors, and includes a Pulitzer Prize winner! Stories and themes cover a wide spectrum of reading preferences. From historical fiction in Post-Revolutionary Russia to a modern-day love story in South America. From a coming-of-age story in 1960’s American South to a fight for freedom in Antebellum South.

Every month, Wednesday Book Club members read a different New York Times Bestselling novel from the last 2 years (listed below) and discuss it at the meetings (every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10am at Wythe County Public Library). And for added fun, the library will show a movie after the discussion.

February (meeting Feb 20)
Book: “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles

March (meeting Mar 20)
Book: “The Underground Railroad” by Colson Whitehead

April (meeting April 17)
Book: “The Ninth Hour” by Alice McDermott

May (meeting May 15)
