A video conversation with Jaimy Gordon

One of the guest presenters at this year's West Virginia Book Festival was author Jaimy Gordon. Her books include "Bogeywoman," "She Drove Without Stopping" and "Shamp of the City-Solo." But it is her most recent novel, Lord of Misrule, that has gained the most acclaim, being the winner of the National Book Award for Fiction in 2010. It’s a novel set in West Virginia, amidst the world of horse-racing.

Jaimy was gracious enough to sit down with us for a conversation with fellow WV Writers member Dr. Edwina Pendarvis.

Thanks go out to Phyllis Wilson Moore for arranging this interview.
