Book Nook: An Interview With Bill Felker


Bill Felker, the host of Poor Will's Almanack on WYSO returned to the Book Nook to discuss his latest project. Recently Bill decided to engage in another book publishing venture in addition to his annual almanacks. Over the years Bill has been keeping meticulous daily journals of his thoughts, observations, and meditations. Bill decided to take his voluminous daily records and compile them into monthly editions that are now available for readers to peruse and savor.

For example, if a reader wished to know what Bill had experienced and observed over the years during the month of July she can pick up "A Daybook for July in Yellow Springs, Ohio: A Memoir in Nature" to read about all the things that Bill has noticed and pondered. Bill takes daily walks and he always brings along a notebook to scribble down his thoughts as he proceeds along nature's path.

If you are a fan of Bill's radio programs, his almanacks, or his columns you will probably enjoy these monthly "memoirs in nature."

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
