Shannon Okey, Publisher at Cooperative Press of Lakewood, Ohio and general all-around good buddy to Marjorie, spoke at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Conference in March. Shannon and Marjorie teamed up to promote her talk and get her famous, at least in Lakewood! She was featured in the Lakewood Observer, Lakewood Patch, which was then picked up by Women Business Info, and Knitty Blog. She was also interviewed in Knit Buzz.
A great piece by Jarrod Zickefoose, my colleague at the Sun Newspapers, is here, and Shannon’s own blog, Knitgrrl, has some great comments on her experiences, plus wonderfully vibrant pictures. The audio of her talk at SXSW is available here.
