Woody Guthrie's sister to sign copies of her new book about him Thursday in Shawnee
SHAWNEE – As the worldwide Woody Guthrie centennial celebration continues, the late, great folk troubadour’s sister will sign copies of her new book about the Oklahoma icon Thursday evening at Rose Manor Nursing Home, 1610 N Bryan.
Mary Jo Guthrie Edgmon, 89, and Guy Logsdon, an expert on Guthrie’s music and life, released their new book “Woody’s Road: Woody Guthrie’s Letters Home, Drawings, Photos, and Other Unburied Treasures” last month during the 15th Annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. Edgmon is the perennial guest of honor at the festival, which takes place annually in the singer-songwriter’s hometown of Okemah.
“It’s worldwide the whole year,” Edgmon, a former Seminole resident who now lives in Shawnee, told me at WoodyFest. “I’m so excited I don’t know what to do.”
