Seed Money by Bartow Elmore: Book Event
Mar 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

bartow “Seed Money” is thus a unique blend of history and journalism that uncovers how Monsanto’s past is now shaping our food future. It’s a story that should matter to everyone who cares where their food comes from and whether we will be able to feed a growing population in the years to come.”

“This is not simply a story of corporate villains heedlessly destroying the planet, though the book does uncover unethical corporate practices that affected people’s health. In many cases, it is actually a story of good people who took on important jobs inside the firm who made small but consequential decisions that had wide-ranging effects on our global environment. A timely narrative, Seed Money is a cautionary tale for the twenty-first century consumer and for the people working in firms who are shaping the future of our food system.”

The convergence of Bart’s interest in and passion for the natural world, history, and the American South is a winding one. It started north of Atlanta, where he was born and raised exploring mountains and rivers by foot and kayak. After college, he made a pit stop in Savannah, Georgia, where he taught history in a public high school, an experience that pushed him to go off to grad school at the University of Virginia. There he took an environmental history course that primed him for his professional calling. Bart believes that it takes a good teacher, a good writer, and a good storyteller to help others to see the power of history, a discipline he believes can and should inform policy decisions, especially ones that affect our planet.

Bart Elmore is associate professor of environmental history and core faculty member of the Sustainability Institute at the Ohio State University. For more information about Bart and his work, visit his site: bartelmore.comBartow picture

The WVU Coed Murders: Book Event
Apr 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The WVU Coed Murders: Book Event @ Taylor Books

The year is 1970- and in Morgantown, West Virginia, two girls, Mared Malarik and Karen Ferrell are mysteriously murdered. The WVU Coed Murders is a story of two WVU Freshmen girls that left a show at the Metropolitan Theatre in downtown Morgantown and entered a cream colored sedan, never to be seen alive again.

Authors of WVU Coed Murders are Geoffrey Fuller and S. James McLaughlin.

Geoffrey C. Fuller has written for literary and commercial magazines and contributed to twenty-five fiction and nonfiction books. He is the author of the novel Full Bone Moon and the true crime books Pretty Little Killers and The Savage Murder of Skylar Neese (a New York Times bestseller).

S. James McLaughlin is a podcast producer of Appalachian Mysteria. Written and produced in West Virginia, the series covers unresolved cases in Appalachia. McLaughlin studied journalism at West Virginia University and graduated with a degree in graphics technology from Fairmont State University.

McLaughlin published a synopsis of the case on Reddit which was crossposted to Facebook and passed on to Geoff Fuller. She also shared the story in person with new friend and podcaster, Kendall Perkinson. These two events serendipitously led to the creation of the podcast and eventually the book.

Go deeper with fresh discoveries, additional evidence, and more of the case that we just couldn’t fit into the podcast, including a new suspect with a history of attacking hitchhiking WVU coeds.
