Book Signing: "Hell in the Holler" by local author, Jared Bellis

  • dale hollow winery (map)

A legend in his own right and Stover local, Jared Bellis (that’s “Mr. Bellis” to some of us here at the winery!) will be at Dale Hollow for a book signing on Saturday, June 1st at 2pm until he gets tired of talking. Also, before anyone asks, the title of the book is not related to Dale Hollow nor is it referring to vineyard work in July and August in Missouri, although it would be pretty applicable!

Here is all the background information you need to know from Amazon:


Jared Bellis is a 20+ year veteran of the public school system in Stover, Missouri. He is currently the Director of the After School program there. He is married with 3 kids, 1 dog, and 3 cats. In his free time he loves to read, play the occasional video game, and spend time with family and friends.

Jared just started writing novels and is enjoying the experience tremendously. His books are filled with dark humor, snarky dialog, and a few history lessons (sorry, been a teacher too long to make it all go away). The language is rough and irreverent but something he truly hopes people can enjoy.

He didn't start this to make money (although that would be nice) so much as because he enjoys telling stories. Hopefully you will enjoy reading them as much as he does writing them.
