Appalachian Reads Book Discussion: River of Earth

Saturday, March 16, 2019

Library Sponsored

(3rd Saturday of every other month)  River of Earth by James Still, written just after the Great Depression, was a pioneering novel in the genre of Appalachian literature. The book deals with issues of poverty and sense of place as it chronicles a family's journey from the meager assurances of subsistence farming to the intrusive but hopeful uncertainties of coal mining.  Discussion will be facilitated by Jan Taylor, who teaches writing at Maryville College.
