On March 7-9 the University of North Alabama celebrated the life and
significance of Pulitizer prize winning author T. S. Stribling, who
from this University 100 years ago in 1903. Stribling's trilogy The Forge,
The Store, and Unfinished Cathedral were reissued by the University of
Press to commemorate the centennial of his graduation. The special limited
edition box set is only available through the Office of Alumni Relations at
the University. On Friday, March 7th, Books-A-Million officially started
Books-A-Million/T. S. Stribling scholarship for the department of English.
The profits from the sale of the boxed set will go to that scholarship.
Wayne O'Neal suggested I contact you about alerting the libraries in this
state about the offer. A picture of the trilogy is attached and at your
request, I will send you information about Stribling. Hopefully, you will
out this suggestion to purchase to all the libraries on the network. We
selling the limited edition for $100 plus tax and handling. The price is
for the box set than for the individual books sold separately. Thanks so
much. Please respond by email or telephone me at the number below.
More Stribling information can be found in the UNA Library Collier
or on the Alumni
website at http://www.una.edu/alumni/FAF_Stribling.htm
