Shuford focus of new book

Published 5:24 pm Thursday, March 1, 2012

Carla Shuford, formerly of Tryon and the daughter of Bob Shuford, is the subject of “Still Hopping, Still Hoping,” an illustrated condensed biography written by Rita Berman, a freelance writer and editor.
Shuford and Berman are both long-time residents of Chapel Hill, N.C., but they didn’t get to know each other until they co-moderated a storytelling class for Shared Learning of Chapel Hill.
“I enjoyed Carla’s stories and decided to publish them as well as details of her life, career and volunteer service. She has received many awards and recognitions,” said Rita.
Shuford, the daughter of Bob Shuford of Tryon, has been an amputee since the age of 15, when her left leg was amputated because of osteosarcoma. That has not deterred her from leading an active life of work at UNC-Chapel Hill and volunteer service for people and various organizations.
Printed by VIP Printing of Chapel Hill, with wire binding and large pages, the book looks somewhat like a scrapbook, Berman said.  It includes stories and poems, as well as photographs of Shuford’s life, interests and passions.
