DC, USA – There isn’t much time left and you’ll need to act quickly if you want the
chance to nominate your favorite recording to the National Recording Registry.
The deadline is set for September 1, 2003.
The National Recording Preservation Act of 2000 was a bill that created the
National Recording Registry, part of the Library of Congress. This registry is
responsible for the preservation of “sound recordings and collections of sound
recordings that are culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant, and
for other purposes” (Public Law 106-474; H.R.4846).”

Chasing Athena’s Shadow.
Set in Pineboro, North Carolina,
Chasing Athena’s Shadow follows the adventures of Grace, an adult literacy teacher, as she seeks to solve a long forgotten family mystery. Her charmingly dysfunctional family is of little help in her quest. Along with her best friends, an attractive Mexican teacher and an amiable gay chef, Grace must find the one fading memory that holds the key to why Grace’s great-grandmother, Athena, shot
her husband on the courthouse steps in 1931.
Traversing the line between the Old South and New South, Grace will have to dig into the past to uncover Athena’s true crime.
