Central Lakes College alumnus Roy C. Booth, playwright-author, will be inducted into the Pillager High School Hall of Fame Sept. 24. A 1983 Pillager graduate, Roy sold his first short story as a freshman. By the time he headed to CLC, Roy had the honor of seeing several of his poems published in national literary magazines. Before graduating from CLC with honors, Roy developed his play-writing skills through an increased involvement with the CLC Theatre program. He parlayed that into degrees in English, speech, and theatre at Bemidji State University. His master’s degree from BSU came with emphasis in creative writing (1998). He has published more than 50 short stories, from science fiction to mystery to fantasy to romance. Several of his 55 stage plays have been performed in 27 different countries. Some of his screenplays have been optioned for further development in the entertainment media.
