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 firstname.lastname@example.org
The tragedy that befell MarshallUniversity on November 14, 1970 is well known and will be a forever fascinating part of college football history. But what’s been revealed up until now contains a number of missing links.
Craig T.Greenlee’s newly-released November Ever After fills that void; with the details only a seasoned journalist could dig up, and with the reverence only someone personally touched by the tragedy could deliver.
Greenlee, a former defensive back at Marshall, discusses his memoir with host Calvin Patterson on the radio talk show Empowering YOU. The half-hour program will air on Monday, January 23 at 7 p.m. on WSNC-FM 90.5. The program will be available on the Internet as a live stream broadcast.

The author’s satisfaction in accurately portraying aspects of the Marshall tragedy that have never been addressed -- until now.
