Did You Know About the Whistlepig?

The Mountain Home Arts Council promotes creative works including producing a periodical issue of The Whistle Pig Literary Journal.*

(*a whistlepig, for those of you new to the area, is a nickname for a groundhog)

There will be a release party for Volume 15 at the Mountain Home Public Library, 790 N 10th E, at 7 p.m. Friday 13 October.

There’s more on their Facebook page, but here’s an example of what you might enjoy in this new issue:

Margaret Koger’s story “The Knife” will be featured in the 2023 Whistle Pig issue. A young Winnie Bullock faces the odds while helping her father homestead a claim between Mountain Home and Boise–as the family anticipates irrigation water that may never come. Two of Grove Koger’s stories will also be included in addition to many more excellent pieces.

“Thanks to the Whistlepig crew, especially Chris DeVore!” says Margaret.
