    The Salvation Army in Christiansburg is in need of a refrigerator. If you have an extra or old one, they could really use it. They store items donated from local grocery stores (out of date items) for the soup kitchen each Monday and Friday. Without it, many needy people are going without.

    Upcoming event: Local interest book signing Saturday in Christiansburg

    This Saturday, August 26, former Virginia Tech provost Fred Carlisle will be signing copies of his newest book, “Hollow and Home.” The event will take place from 1-3 p.m. at the Christiansburg Barnes & Noble (see event details below).

    The book speaks to the ongoing national conversation about the cultural divide between rural and urban America. It provides an exception to the belief that rural and small town areas are dysfunctional, a rebuttal to the New York Times bestseller “Hillbilly Elegy.”

    Carlisle tells his personal story of moving to a rural Southwest Virginia Hollow as a well-traveled, well-educated academic. Originally drawn to Clover Hollow because of its beauty, he is surprised to find a vibrant community between fifth and sixth-generation residents.

    The experience forces Carlisle to develop an appreciation for the rural way of life, and inspires him to discover his own roots in Delaware, Ohio, a place he prided himself on leaving behind.

    About the author:

    E. Fred Carlisle has been writing about identity and place for years. He is the author of four previous books—two memoirs and studies of Walt Whitman and of Loren Eiseley. A former provost at Virginia Tech, he grew up in Ohio, enjoyed a long academic career, lived for a decade in the rural Virginia mountains, and now divides his time between Virginia and South Florida.
