Yes, peeps du jour,
it's Dain Daller time.
Tune in, turn on,
and drop anchor.
where high art
flows thick as the Ol' Muddy.
Former Fairfield Ledger Editor Dean Gabbert and his publicist Marilyn Candido will be at the KRUU studio on Friday August 7, to be interviewed by Caroline Kilbourn and Chamaigne Montana on Writers’ Voices.
Dean's river writings have earned him two awards: the 2006 James V. Swift Prize in Maritime Literature from the Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterways Library, St. Louis; and a 1993 Public Service Commendation from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Dean and his wife were both long time staffers at the Fairfield Ledger. They moved to Nuavoo when he retired as Editor and Publisher in 1985.
If you go for rivers and riverboats, you'll enjoy Dean Gabbert's latest book, a collection of river stories entitled Brown-Water Boating. Spanning 45 years, the stories will take you places you’ve never been before. Many of these stories appeared in the Waterways Journal and other publications, including the Fairfield Ledger. Among other things, this book is a fascinating history of our area.
Dean is also the author of two Mississippi River novels, The Log of the Jessie Bill (1993) and Let the Lower Lights be Burning (2002).
Please tune in to welcome Dean Gabbert back to Fairfield!
