National launch for Reed’s Homophones 4th Edition

Pisgah Press and Reed’s Homophones are sponsoring two episodes of the National Public Radio game show Says You!, “a public radio game show of bluff and bluster, words and whimsy.” The shows are taping in Pisgah Press’s hometown of Asheville, NC in June 2018! The only nationally syndicated radio show devoted to wordplay, Says You! is heard over more than 80 NPR stations across America (find your local listing here). Devotees in markets where it doesn’t air can catch the show on the Says You! website.


Robin Russell Gaiser

reading from her forthcoming collection Open for Lunch

Blue Ridge Books, Waynesville, NC – June 23 at 3 p.m.

Robin Russell Gaiser’s first book, Musical Morphine: Transforming Pain One Note at a Time, has been selling like hotcakes wherever she makes an appearance — the Adirondack towns where she began her career, outside Washington, D.C., at a reunion week of her award-winning band, and at bookstores and faith communities and meetings of specialists on aging and end-of-life care. She will be reading and signing — and singing, since she always performs some of the music she plays for patients and families — at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville on Saturday, June 23.
