This event will be on Tuesday, September 4, at 7 p.m., in the Main Gallery of Blount County Public Library.
From the book description at Amazon:
The book analyzes trends in contemporary writing on Appalachia, presents a brief history of Appalachia with an eye toward unpacking Appalachian stereotypes, and provides examples of writing, art, and policy created by Appalachians as opposed to for Appalachians.
