Welch featured on C-Span's 'Books TV'

Wendy Welch, director of the Graduate Medical Education Consortium of Southwest Virginia, was a featured author at the Southern Festival of the Book, held in Nashville earlier this month.

Welch discussed her work "The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: a memoir of community, friendship, and the uncommon pleasure of a good book" (St. Martin's Press) on C-Span's Books TV.

The book was nominated for the Library of Virginia's Literary Award for non-fiction. The link to the C-span feature is http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/315533-4. Welch's second book, tentatively titled "Little is the New Big," is on the rise of small and independent businesses in America.
