“…If there is one thing I hope my books do always and forever, it’s that they honor working people.” –Adriana Trigiani
Thank you for visiting our website. Here’s to a fabulous summer!
Our in-school writing program, The Origin Project, is flourishing! TOP recently won the Helen Matthews Lewis Award for Community Service and the program continues to grow throughout Virginia. Bestselling author Meg Wolitzer wowed classrooms this Spring, working with students on their pieces. Our Skype sessions with students have filled the calendar and we’re thrilled.
The Big Stone Gap movie is now available to rent or own, and debuted around the world this spring. We’re proud that our movie was named one of the TOP-grossing women-directed films of 2015 and the #2 Top-Grossing Romantic Comedy of 2015. The perfect accompaniment to the DVD is, of course, the original soundtrack, now available on iTunes and to own on CD, from Lakeshore Entertainment. It’s a must have for those of you who love the music of the mountains, with selections from our Grammy-winning composer John Leventhal and great artists like Rosanne Cash, Ralph Stanley, Papa Joe Smiddy and the Reedy Creek Boys, If Birds Could Fly, and Michael Trigiani.
