Cannibal turkeys are disturbing…Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow US compatriots! May your plate be overflowing with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and…I have to stop now because I just drooled on my keyboard and almost caused an electrical fire… but you get the idea.

One of the non-foodie things I’m most thankful for this year, other than family of course, is having a fun read in the form of “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” Roy Underhill’s “screwball comedy set in 1937 about a woodworker who heads the U.S. government’s agricultural “Broadcast Research” division.”

For more details about “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” including how to order your copy (hardbound or digital) visit Lost Art Press, order your hardbound copy by November 29, 2014 and you’ll get free domestic shipping. Quite possibly as an enticement to get you to pickup your own copy, Lost Art Press convinced Roy to record his favorite chapter from the book.

According to Chris Schwarz “we asked him to take a few minutes this week to read one of his favorite chapters from his new novel…Roy lit a fire, fired up the laptop and recorded this short 7-minute chapter for you to enjoy.

This weekend, Megan Fitzpatrick (who edited the novel) and I (who watched) will be filming each of us reading our favorite chapters and posting them here. I plan to read mine while wearing my tube top, if I can find it…”

So if you need a moment away from the family today, or you just really enjoy having someone read aloud to you, checkout Roy’s reading of Chapter 12 of “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!”
