Oakley Hall

Today I received an email from fellow '07 Squaw Valley attendee Renee Thompson, with news that Oakley Hall, the workshops' founder, passed away. You can read about him and all that he accomplished here.

My sharpest memory of Mr. Hall at last summer's conference was passing him on the valley's bike path while out for a morning run. He was out for a morning walk and gave me a jolly, slightly scared wave. Running writers can be a panic-inducing bunch. He will be missed.
