Last year, I blogged about Thomas's history of the Walnut Knob area of Franklin and Floyd Counties here: http://peevishpen.blogspot.com/2010/03/this-pleasant-land.html.
Fred First, a wonderful writer and blogger from Floyd County, will also have his books at the Festival:
In the next few months, I'll blog about more of the books you can expect to see at the Mountain Spirits Arts Festival.
Edited to add update: It looks like Jean Thomas Schaeffer won't be able to attend the festival. However, her father's books should be available from the Franklin County Historical Society's table.
