St Brigid Press on Public Radio!

Emily Hancock, in the St Brigid Press book bindery Greetings, Friends,

Last week, I had the honor and pleasure of being interviewed by regional NPR reporter and producer Martha Woodroof. For several years now, Woodroof has been talking with folks in our area (the Shenandoah Valley and central Blue Ridge of Virginia) who are creatively engaged with the world ~ from musicians to sculptors to computer programmers ~ and sharing these conversations with her public radio listeners on NPR-affiliate WMRA.

The weekly 10-minute show is called "The Spark," and Woodroof's piece on St Brigid Press will air this Friday, June 6th, at 6:20pm in our area. The interview will also be available to listen to online after Friday, at the following address: [embed][/embed]

In the meantime, check out the promo that is up on "The Spark" page ~ it includes a slideshow of the St Brigid Press shop.

Woodroof and I had great fun talking about all things printing, bookbinding, and poetry. Hope you enjoy listening!

All best from the Press,

Emily Hancock
