Russ Walkup lived in the Marysville area during the 1970's and worked for the local school district.  He will visit Marysville again to share his book, An Appalachian Odyssey.  He says, "This book is a tribute to my parents who instilled in me a strong will to succeed.  The emphasis was on hard work and honesty.  The cultural differences I encountered could be compared to Homers' account of the Greek god, Odysseus.  My experiences could never measure up to the Cyclops but there were many challenges along the way". Walkup resides in Lexington, KY, with his wife.
