Marian McConnell, who attended the 2014 festival, will again have her books Murder Hole and Emergence with her, but she'll also have some of her music CDs.
Murder Hole is a collection of legends and history of early explorers, and people who survived accidents in the cave in Catawba. Marian and her husband Dan own the property where the famous cave is located. A Roanoke Times Review of the book is here.
