Historic PENN'S STORE presents

Kentucky Writers Day Events
April 23, 27-30, 2017

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Dr. H. R. Stoneback and the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society from New York will be joining us again this year at Penn's Store.

H. R. Stoneback
is Distinguished Professor of English at the State University of New York. As Honorary President of the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society, every year he leads dozens of students from New York and many other states (including France!) to Kentucky to study Roberts, one of Kentucky's greatest writers, and to participate in the annual Roberts Conferences held at St. Catharine College (and other venues in Springfield and Harrodsburg) every April since 1999. In addition, Roberts Society members have participated in the Penn's Store Kentucky Writers Day programs for over a decade.  Stoneback is the author or editor of 30 books, roughly half poetry and half literary studies.

Penn's Store is the oldest country store in America being run continuously by the same family. It has been in the Penn family since 1850. Nestled in the central region of Kentucky, Penn's Store has become a popular site for visitors seeking living history in an ever changing, modern world. The store remains today much as it has throughout its past 150+ years. It is not a restored landmark; it is an authentic landmark.
