Senior Scribbles Unearthed

Length: 141 pages2 hours


They started out as series of “tall tales” shared with a co-worker. These vignettes proved so engaging, enjoyable and insightful that their author was encouraged to find a place to publish them. Soon afterward a newspaper in the mountains of North Carolina began to beguile its readers with the Senior Scribbles of Chuck Thurston. Intended first simply for senior adults in the region, the appeal of the stories spread across the state and among many generations of readers.
Chuck has referred to these marvelous tales as “reminiscences and lighthearted views of life, from one who has spent some time in it.” They are, he confesses, mostly true—embellished only “when the facts as observed needed some more zip.” Though keenly insightful about human nature, history and the vicissitudes of American culture in the last half century, Chuck has no idealistic political agenda or philosophy in his writing. His tales are witty and warm, nostalgic and honest, and above all delightful to read.
What began as a brief series of beguiling stories eventually became several volumes of Scribbles. Senior Scribbles Unearthed is the just the first!
