RICHLANDS, Va. - Four articles by Greg Horn, assistant professor of English at Southwest Virginia Community College, are scheduled to appear in the forthcoming book, "Musicians and Composers of the 20th Century," (Salem Press).

This reference volume, to be released in the summer of 2008, contains a collection of concise biographies of the most important musical figures of the past 100 years. It is intended primarily for use by high school and college students engaged in research projects, as well as all others interested in basic facts about music and musicians.

Horn will be contributing biographies of bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, country singer/songwriter Merle Haggard and rock and roll icons Chuck Berry and John Lennon to the publication.

A lifelong resident of Southwest Virginia, Horn has taught literature and writing at SVCC since 1993.
