In celebration of homecoming, June Langford Berkley, author-writing coach-educator-performer-mentor-world traveler, and humorist, will receive the Salem International University’s Outstanding Achievement Award, October 3, 2009, Salem, West Virginia.
Members of West Virginia Writers Inc, and the West Virginia Library Commission will recognize June not only as a noted author but as the willing judge of state writing contests and as a humorous capable presenter of workshops and historical monologues.
Her novella SHANNAGANEY BLUE, set in West Virginia, is felt by many to have the ring of truth of Harper Lee's novel TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. It is available at James and Law in Clarksburg.
Reservation for the banquet may be obtained by contacting Cheryl L. Rogers, 304-326-1344 or
