What Sources Did I Use to Find My Kentucky Authors?
I used both printed and on-line sources to help build the list of my Kentucky authors.
The vast bulk of my Kentucky authors came from two printed sources:
The Guide: A Bibliography and Collector’s Guide of Kentucky Authors and Their Books by Larry L. Arnett (2005, Kentucke Publishing Company)
The Anthology: The Kentucky Anthology: Two Hundred Years of Writing in the Bluegrass State by Wade Hall (2005, The University Press of Kentucky)
I fine tuned my list of Kentucky authors from on-line sources. I was surprised to find that there is not a lot of information about Kentucky authors on the internet. The Carnegie Center's Hall of Fame for Kentucky Writers was the most helpful site. Second in line was the Kentucky's tourism website.
These are the on-line sources I used to fill in the gaps of my list of Kentucky authors (in no particular order).
Listed below are two websites at which new Kentucky authors might emerge. I reviewed these sites and have tagged them for periodic visits, searching for new authors.
If you know of an informative on-line source about Kentucky authors, please contact me.
