Charlotte Writer’s Club Meeting

The speaker for the October meeting of the Charlotte Writer’s Club was Robert “Bob” Inman.  Inman is a former news anchor at WBTV, novelist, playwright and screenwright — not to mention being a great program speaker.

His very human tales of growing up in Alabama, lurking in the next room at Mama Coopers on a Sunday afternoon to hear the adults tell family stories and testing out his Uncle’s WWII parachute enthralled us all — the very heart and soul of an American era gone by.

His novels include Home Fires Burning, Old Dogs and Children, Dairy Queen Days and Captain Saturday.  I encourage you to read all of them.  Even though I’m from “up north” I connected with many of his characters and the small town Alabama way of life.  His playwrighting includes Crossroads and the Christmas Bus.  He has written six screen plays for television including two for “Hallmark Hall of Fame”.

Thanks Bob for a great program.

  1. Ditto. It was a heartful, inspiring presentation. I just got two of his books and can’t wait to read them.
