Foxfire Women: Stories of Landscape and Community in the Mountain South
March 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Meet the women featured in Foxfire’s newest publication, The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Women: Stories of Landscape and Community in the Mountain South. This edited volume features twenty-one oral histories from Appalachian women from the Foxfire archive, magazine, and book series. These remarkable narratives, as told through oral histories, illuminate a diverse regional culture held together by the threads that are woven between women and place, and across generations. Told sometimes with humor, sometimes with sadness, but always with a gripping rawness and honesty, the stories recount women’s lived experiences from 1967 to the present, in Georgia and the Carolinas. As a collective, the stories speak against the regional stereotypes and offer instead a sampling of the many expressions of their strength. This event is free and open to all ages.
Tuesday, March 21st 10:30-11:30 am at the Rabun County Public Library
