Barbourville inspires former Union professor’s new novel

Former Barbourville resident and seasoned author Dwain Herndon released his third book Monday, October 30. In Somewhere a Pinch of Love, Herndon discusses issues such as abuse and the need to feel accepted and loved.


Dwain Herndon called Barbourville, Ky. home in 1963 when he taught speech and drama at Union College. While at the college, he produced Antigone, Taming of the Shrew and Cat on a Tin Roof.

Herndon recalls his time at Union College “like being a member of a big happy family.” He and his wife were only there one year but “have never forgotten the warm experience from faculty and students at Union and from people in the town.”
