Have you heard the one about books disappearing from civilization? Maybe we're waiting for the flying cars to take them all away.
Snark aside, the publishing industry has had its share of troubles.
But it also enjoys widespread support, as demonstrated next weekend (October 3rd) by the annual Ashland Book And Author Festival.
The fest includes a new entity this year, the Southern Oregon Literary Alliance.
Midge Raymond of Ashland Creek Press and Tod Davies of Exterminating Angel Press visit the studio to boost books, reading, and the festival.
