Book Nook: Poor Will's Almanack 2017, by Bill Felker

IMG_0855-e1472670477485-262x300.jpg

Every week you can hear his dulcet tones on your radios. His name is Bill Felker and he's the man behind "Poor Will's Almanack" on WYSO. Bill returned to the Book Nook to talk about his latest edition of this print version of his work. In our interview Bill recalled how the idea for his original columns in the Yellow Springs News came about and he details the various features of his 2017 Almanack.

Each month's entry closes with a short story that was contributed by a reader. Bill will usually include at least one good outhouse yarn among these tales and he offers listeners a teaser during this interview: Bill has quite a stack of outhouse stories and he's thinking about pulling them together into one volume. Wouldn't that be swell?

The Book Nook on WYSO is made possible by six local library systems in southwest Ohio:  the Greene County Public LibraryWashington-Centerville Public Library, MidPointe Library SystemClark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
