Rodney Crowell set for Off Square Books tonight (Jan. 20)

OXFORD TOWN – Innate storyteller and country music legend Rodney Crowell is scheduled to visit Off Square Books tonight (Jan. 20) at 6 as he tours in support of his recently released memoir “Chinaberry Sidewalks.” Check out page 5 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town for Oxford Town Editor Jeff McVay’s coverage of his recent interview with Crowell where they discussed everything from Crowell’s “rough” childhood (that evolved into something good) to his classic, poetic storytelling through his music. We’re hopeful, confident even, that the Grammy award winning musician will show up with his guitar strapped across his back tonight at 6. After all, he is the storyteller. (January 20, 2011, Page 5)

Barry Hannah – entertainer, teacher, inspiration

Barry Hannah entertained many with his highly-acclaimed novels and collections of short stories, but his biggest contribution to the local community may well have come in the classroom as he’s taught, mentored and inspired countless students through the years.

Finding a resolution that can be kept

OPINION – It’s difficult for most of us to keep our New Year’s resolutions for any length of time. One this year that’s drawing special attention is redeeming all of those gift cards and certificates received as Christmas gifts. Proper planning and “hard” work will hopefully pay off. (January 8, 2010, Page 4A)
