I was there in 1970 when most of Marshall University's football team perished in a plane crash. Although many years have passed, there are still a multitude of stories that have yet to be told. "November Ever After" takes you there. This memoir goes beyond the night of the tragedy. It provides an intimate look at those who were left behind -- the real story as told by the folks who were actually there. Feel free to contact the author at email@example.com
I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with Craig Greenlee many times. He has been a longtime contributor to the Winston-Salem Journal (NC) sports pages. I spent 20 years in the WXII-TV sports department in Winston-Salem.
Usually, I’d see Craig at high school football or basketball games. Occasionally, I’d run into him at college games. But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned that Craig had been a member of Marshall University’s football team – the year before the plane crash and the year after.
I immediately told him, “You should write a book.” He told me he was already hard at work on one.
That book – November Ever After – is finally finished, and available.
We often put ourselves in the position of “What if?”
Well, Craig has lived with that “What if?” for over 40 years.
I can’t wait to read it.
