We are pleased to announce that Mountain Gap Books’ first publication, Rhea Wells Boy of Jonesborough by Brenda M. G’Fellers, is available in print now on Amazon and will be available locally beginning on January 26, 2018. This release coordinates with “Far and Away and Close to Home Reception and Art/History Talk” presented by The Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee & Southwest Virginia.
The Heritage Alliance says the following about Rhea Wells: “From the Austrian Alps, to the coast of Sicily, to a village in Spain, words and art have the power to transport us around the world. They also have the power to bring us back home to a farm in Washington County, Tennessee. Children’s book author/illustrator Rhea Wells ventured far and wide throughout his life, but he always held his hometown of Jonesborough near and dear to his heart.
“Wells’ work will be showcased in the exhibit Far Away and Close to Home: The Art and Words of Author/Illustrator Rhea Wells which will be on display at the McKinney Center at Booker T. Washington School from January 26 through February 23. The exhibit will be open to the public from 9-5 Monday-Friday and 10-3 on Saturday. Far Away and Close to Home is presented by the Heritage Alliance and is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.”
Author Brenda G’Fellers will be present at the reception to sign copies of Rhea Wells Boy of Jonesborough, a children’s nonfiction picture book about Rhea Wells’ life. The reception will be held on January 26, 2017, from 6:30-8:30 PM at The McKinney Center 103 Franklin Ave. Jonesborough, TN 37659.
We’d love for you to join us, but if you can’t, copies of Rhea Wells Boy of Jonesborough are available on Amazon.com
