Novel Ideals: Author Natrelle Long on High Plains Morning

A big High Plains Morning thank you goes out to Texas novelist Natrelle Long for stopping by the studio with Eric Meljac of High Plains Poetry Project to tell us about the upcoming reading and Q&A this Thursday night from 7 to 8pm at Burrowing Owl Books (419 16th St., Canyon). Natrelle will read from her new novel, The Tattooed Cat, which continues the saga of Charley Anderson, a former English teacher that’s always getting into adventures in search of justice. The book has been honored with a Literary Titan Award, and it’s one of only eleven books out of hundreds honored with such an award this year.

If you’d like to help Natrelle with her winter charity project of handmade “Charley Scarves” for those in need, please let her know! She’s looking for knitters and crochet masters across the High Plains to make one scarf (yarn will be provided) for those facing housing instability in the Texas Panhandle. Go to her Facebook and send her a message!

For more information about the reading on Thursday, call Dallas at Burrowing Owl at (806) 282-9888. This reading concludes the summer series for High Plains Poetry Project, but there are more planned for the Fall. If you’d like to talk to Eric about the roster, he can be reached at 806-651-2486.
