One local writer from West Virginia is highlighting residents throughout the Eastern Panhandle and how they positively impact the Mountain State.
In her book “Panhandle Portraits,” author Katherine Cobb traveled to all eight counties in the Eastern Panhandle her book has pictures of 77 people ranging from doctors and artists to entrepreneurs and pastors.
She says the purpose of the book set is to put citizens who have made significant contributions to the area in the spotlight.
Her favorite part of the process has been getting to know West Virginians on a personal level and she says she has even grown in the process.
“A lot of people don’t think their special but I think everybody is special and there’s something special to talk about and something unique to talk about and bring out and I’m just grateful that these people wanted to share that with the rest of the world,” said Local Writer, Katherine Cobb.
