)-- In celebration of "American Craft Week" The Wright Scoop – Sylvia Hoehns Wright during "Meet the Artists" at Laurel Gallery, www.laurelgallery.net , on October 8th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. hosts a signing of her book – A Path Worn Smooth, which is dedicated to the people of Laurel Historic District VA.
In her book, Wright invites readers to savor nostalgia for the places that are near and dear to heart, recall family traditions; but more importantly, renew experiences. Challenging all to celebrate heritage – their community arts legacy - because heritage is more than a possession, it is a gift: the birthright of our children.
Spotlighted by the National Women's History project as a "great book if you want an invigorating read on the beach or to give as a gift to your mother, grandmother or daughter," in draft format, Wright’s book received the Writer’s Connection VA Book Competition Award. Through donating an excerpt to an anthology – Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln, she is one of nation-wide contributors recognized by the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge George Washington Metal for their collaborative effort to promote an understanding and appreciation of America’s rich heritage and unique freedoms.
Committed to the welfare of civic and business communities, Wright is a founding Director involved in the establishment of Laurel as a Historic District and founding member of the Massey Cancer Center’s volunteer program. Details of her books are available at Sylvia Wright's Storefront - Lulu.com and activities at web site www.TheWrightScoop.com .
