Two of the five inductees into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame visited WNOX on Thursday, bringing the total number of honorees present to three. I interviewed Vince Vawter and David Lauver for the East Tennessee Report. I couldn’t interview myself but David did turn the tables to ask me a question during the show.
The Hall of Fame luncheon is a fundraiser for Friends of Literacy. Executive Director Melissa Nance joined us for the interview. She spoke about the organization’s mission to help under-educated or illiterate adults.
