Our hero and friend BARRY HANNAH passed away yesterday. For those unfamiliar, check out WATER LIARS from his awe-inspiring short story collection AIRSHIPS.
We hear that some local writers and students may be gathering to read selections from his work tonight at Proud Larry's beginning around 9pm. This weekend, the Oxford Conference for the Book dedicated to Barry Hannah will be taking place as planned, beginning with a special Thacker Mountain Radio show on Thursday at Paris-Yates Chapel.
We send love to all family, friends, and fans of Barry Hannah.
