2013 Harvey Award nomination for Best Original Graphic Novel!

We just learned that our book is nominated in the Best Graphic Album Original category for the 2013 Harvey Awards. These awards are creator-chosen, so this is a heart-warming nod from our fellow comics-makers... thanks to everyone who cast their vote for our book!

Carter Family in Papua New Guinea


Thanks to Beth Harrington's husband Andy (who is a vulcanologist), "The Carter Family: Don't Forget This Song" made it all the way to the South Pacific, where a copy was given to Andy's colleague Ima, who runs one of the volcano institutes in Papua New Guinea!

Happy Birthday, Beth Harrington!


Our friend Beth Harrington, who has been working for years on what seems likely to be the definitive Carter Family documentary, celebrates her birthday today.  Have a great day, Beth!  We look forward to watching "The Winding Stream" one day very soon...
