SWAG Writers presents Inman Majors


The SWAG Writers (Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta Group of the Blue Ridge Writers Club) Reading Series continues with a reading and talk by Inman Majors, award-winning author of Love’s Winning Plays (W.W. Norton, August 2012) and three previous novels.

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at the Darjeeling Café, 103 W. Beverley St., Staunton. The reading is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.

This event is the latest public reading sponsored by SWAG organizers who hope to elevate the profile of area writers and promote the literary arts in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County by providing a forum for local and visiting authors to share their work. The group is made up of professional, aspiring, and hobby writers who also host a monthly mixer where members meet to network and socialize and read short excerpts of their work at an open mic. Writers interested in joining the group can contact Cliff Garstang at [email protected].

About the book:

“A fast, fun book. Reads like a mixture of Dan Jenkins and Larry McMurtry.” – Barry Switzer, former coach of the University of Oklahoma and the Dallas Cowboys

“Not since Lucky Jim has there been as lovable a hapless hero as Raymond Love. Lovable Love. In Inman Majors’ romp through big-time college football, love is all fumbles, yet we cheer every play. What a smart, funny novel.” – Roger Rosenblatt

“A rare football book for both the fanatic and non-worshiper alike. You’ll meet those characters who populate every watering hole on the college circuit. Inman Majors’ Coach Woody will have you chuckling out loud as Coach Love searches for his best play, yet. A superb read by a fine, young writer who understands football.” – Brent Musburger
